Ocean Network Express (ONE), the new Japanese liner, has revealed how it intends to get clients to pay for its compliance to the 2020 global sulphur cap. In a release yesterday, ONE said that the majority of its fleet would sail with 0.5% sulphur fuel when the cap kicks in in 13 months’ time, rather than using scrubbers or LNG. The ONE Bunker Surcharge will start on January 1, 2019.
Separately ONE has implemented a low sulphur fuel charge for ships calling at the newly created Yangtze Delta emission control area in China. ONE is slapping a $15 per teu surcharge on all boxes leaving Shanghai, Ningbo and Nanjing from the start of next month.
