Dili Port Congestion Surcharge

Dear Valued Customers,

Due to the now unsustainable levels of berth congestion at Dili Port, Swire Shipping is obliged to introduce a port congestion surcharge in order to sustain our scheduled liner services to and from Dili.

The congestion surcharge, which will be effective from the Antung 1602, will be applied to all cargoes imported to or exported from Dili Port as follows:



20’ Container

40’ Container

Breakbulk & LCL per RVT

Port Congestion Charge (PCF)





The PCF will be invoiced in Dili to shippers on export bookings, or to consignees on import bookings.

The congestion surcharge will be reviewed on a quarterly basis, and adjusted accordingly should levels of berth congestion improve or deteriorate.

Please do not hesitate to contact your local representative for further clarification.


Yours sincerely,

Swire Shipping Trade Management
