EBS Trade from Sri Lanka to Red Sea and Europe

Due to the strong demand of containers for the European market, and consequent need of costly ad hoc inventory repositioning, MSC will implement an Equipment Imbalance Surcharge (EBS) for dry cargo going from Sri Lanka to Red Sea and Europe.

As from 1 July 2021 (B/L date) until further notice, the EBS will be charged USD 200/40 HC or EUR 165/40 HC.

Any other elements of the price, as indicated in the last EU Price Announcements for the relevant trades published on msc.com, still apply and remain unchanged.

Should you have any questions, please contact your local MSC representatives in our global network of more than 500 offices.
