TO mark it 20th anniversary, Germany's leading terminal operator, EUROGATE is to offer shippers and shipowners free storage of standard containers for 20 calendar days at its facility in Wilhelmshaven in Germany.
In a statement, the terminal operator said 'the offer will be available for 14 months and will end on December 31, 2020,' adding that the campaign is limited to ISO standard containers (20-, 40- and 45-foot containers, as well as high-cube containers) for import and export cargo only.
'It does not apply to non-ISO containers, refrigerated containers, dangerous goods, empty containers, transshipment or break-bulk loads and is only valid for the EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven,' the statement added.
'Given the current fluctuating, and at times uncertain, global economic conditions, the campaign offers shippers and shipowners significantly more flexibility. In the event of delayed ship arrivals or even cancellations, customers will no longer incur an additional financial penalty,' the company said.
EUROGATE explained that Wilhelmshaven was chosen to host the campaign 'because it is Germany's transshipment hub of the future. Its nautical conditions make it ideal for all ship sizes, particularly the increasing number of ultra large container vessels of more than 20,000 TEU'.
