Container line Ocean Network Express (ONE) will be applying a low sulphur fuel surcharge for Taiwan and the China emission control areas (ECAs) next year.

China’s three main port areas and Taiwan are implementing a 0.5% sulphur ECA zones which are set to increase the costs of calling as container lines will have to burn more expensive low sulphur fuel in these zones and while at port.

ONE is implementing a $15 per teu charge for export shipments from central China to the Asia, US and Canada from 1 January 2019. While for North China, South China, Hong Kong and Macau to Asia, US and Canada a $15 per surcharge will be levied from 15 January 2019.
