(27.11.2020) We are pleased and delighted to inform you that the Kiel Canal dues will remain suspended beyond 2020 until 31.12.2021.
This further suspension has been mainly achieved by the relentless work and support of the Initiative Kiel-Canal e.V. and the German Shipbrokers’ Association. The suspension of traffic dues is a very important step in restoring the competitiveness of the Kiel Canal.
The Kiel Canal is Corona free! Hygiene and distance rules are taken very seriously at the Kiel Canal. The result is convincing: Without a single COVID-19 case within the pilots, helmsmen and agents at the Kiel Canal, the Kiel Canal is the safest and most cost efficient shortcut into the Baltic Sea and vice versa.
