IMO 2020 Low Sulphur Surcharge
Effective 1st January 2020
Effective 1st January 2020, The International Maritime Organization (IMO) will introduce new regulations
restricting all sea-going vessels such that they must use fuel (low Sulphur bunker) with a maximum 0.5 %
Sulphur content. This will significantly improve the global carbon footprint of ocean carriers and sea-going
vessels worldwide, reducing their Sulphur emissions by 85%.
The global shipping industry will be heavily impacted, as the new IMO 2020 Low Sulphur Regulations will increase shipping fuel costs worldwide. Current indications are that the cost of Low Sulphur fuel will be
approximately US$180/ton dearer than the current “dirty bunker”. This is an increase of about 40%.
