Low water surcharge

Rotterdam/Neuss July 3, 2018

Water level / low water surcharge (LWS)

Dear customer,

We are informing you that the water level at Duisburg-Ruhrort is showing a trend towards the level under which our LWS will be applicable.
Please refer to the water level indicator www.elwis.de.
Today at 05:00 hrs the level was 280 cm. The forecast for Thursday, July 5th 2018 reads 267 cm, under the critical level of 270 cm, under which
level our LWS-table is applicable. We therefore remind you that the water levels prevailing at 05:00 hrs at the day of loading of the barges
are decisive for the proper LWS-amount that we will be invoiced by us.
It is therefore expected that bookings for barges as from 5th of July will be subjected to the LWS-system.

We will keep you informed during the LWS-situation of any further changes on a daily basis.

Thank you very much for your understanding.
