Shipping news, Middle East

Several carriers have advised that with immediate effect, certain shipments will be subject to a so named “Warrisk Surcharge”

Reason for this is the increased tensions in the Gulf, due to several tankers having been attacked in the Strait of Hormuz, near Iran.

The entire Gulf area is subject to this surcharge, which will be applied to shipments to and from:

  • Bahrain
  • Iraq
  • Kuwait
  • Oman
  • Qatar
  • Saudi Arabia
  • United Arab Emirates

The height of the surcharge varies per carrier.
