Important: Delmar VGM Fee Schedule Applicable to Export Ocean Shipments

Date: June 23, 2016
Subject: Important: Delmar VGM Fee Schedule Applicable to Export Ocean Shipments
Dear Valued Customers,

Effective July 1, 2016, Delmar will apply the following fees to international shippers, relative to the
IMO SOLAS global initiative:

Delmar VGM processing fee:

  • 15 USD per shipment

This fee will cover incremental costs whereby Delmar will obtain, process and submit declared
VGM to the carrier.

Delmar VGM administration fee:

  • 25 USD per shipment (LCL shipments)
  • 10 USD per container (FCL shipments) minimum 25 USD per bill of lading

This fee will be assessed when Delmar is mandated to weigh or re-weigh any given shipment and submit a certified VGM to a carrier. The weighing service will be subject to any additional charges related to the cost of the weighing service, container repositioning or trucker waiting time, demurrage or any related costs.

Please be reminded that it is the shipper’s responsibility (as per the carrier Master Bill of Lading) to declare and submit the VGM. Carriers will not load containers without the VGM, which must be transmitted before the advertised carrier cut-off time, the latter will vary depending on the service string.

We will continue to closely monitor market conditions and update our clients accordingly.

Additional information may be obtained by contacting your local Delmar representative.
