Kiel-Canal dues will be suspended

(2.7.2020) We are glad to inform you that due to the successful efforts of the German Shipbrokers` Association and the “Initiative Kiel-Canal” the government agreed to suspend the Kiel-Canal dues until 31.12.2020. Since the regulation will only become effective upon publication in the official Federal Gazette, we expect this to happen in the course of next week.  This will result in a reduction of Kiel-Canal transit expenses by approximately 20 to25.  We will inform you immediately upon receipt of the effective date.
