The Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) published its 2020 Pilotage Tariff Decision on 6 December 2019. With this letter we would like to inform you that the ACM has set a generic national tariff change of + 3.03%. 

This tariff change is caused by several factors, including the lower number of pilotage voyages estimated for 2020. In addition, the percentages in the Quantity Discount Matrix have been adjusted in accordance with the unanimous advice of the Sector (i.e. a reduction of table 2017 to table 2013 over 3 years in 3 equal steps, resulting in a maximum discount of 38.00% for 2020).  


You can download the Tariff Decision from the website of the ACM: https://www.acm.nl/sites/default/files/documents/2019-12/besluit-loodsgeldtarieven-2020.pdf.  

All new tariffs are included in our calculator wich can be used to calculate pilotage tariffs in all regions. Please note: before January 1, 2020 you have to change the tariff period. After January 1 2020 the tariffs applicable for 2020 will be changed to default.
