Tariffs 2020

Tariffs 2020

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).
