Montevideo offers incentives to encourage vessel callsFeb, 27, 2019 Posted by datamarnews
Uruguay’s National Ports Administration (ANP) is offering a 5% discount on its Montevideo Port use tariff to shipping lines that maintain the same number of vessel calls at the port in 2019, as in 2018. The discount stands at 8% if last year’s numbers are exceeded. ANP is confident that this year the port will have a similar number of calls as last year.
The offer is valid for container ships, container barges and Ro-Ro vessels – both deepsea and cabotage. Maersk has informed ANP that it will increase calls at Montevideo in 2019, while Cosco, Grimaldi, and Hapag Lloyd plan to maintain 2018 numbers.
The following table shows The Port of Montevideo’s vessel calls by carrier for the last two years:
