Home > About us > Dues & Fees

Fairway dues are based on two components: the vessel’s gross tonnage and the cargo quantity loaded or unloaded. For domestic traffic dues are charged for loaded cargo only.

The number of calls subject to fairway dues based on the gross tonnage is a maximum of five per calendar month for passenger vessels and two per calendar month for other vessels.

Cargo-based dues are charged with SEK 2.75 per tonne of cargo goods and with SEK 1.00 for what is referred to as low value goods. Goods regarded as low value are described in the appendix to the Swedish Maritime Administration’s regulations (SJÖFS 2014:8) on fairway dues.  

The fairway dues based on the vessel’s gross tonnage are charged in accordance with the following table.

The sulphur fee is no longer charged and there will be no rebate to vessels operating on low sulphur fuel.

Vessels that have an established average value for total nitrogen oxide emissions that is less than 6,0 grams per kilowatt-hour may, after application to the Swedish Maritime Administration, receive a certificate in accordance with the Swedish Maritime Administration regulations on environmentally differentiated fairway dues (SJÖFS 2014:10). For vessels with such a certificate, a reduced fee per unit of the vessel’s gross tonnage will be charged with the following amounts.

For vehicle vessels in regular service, a fee reduction of 20 per cent will be given on that part of the fairway dues based on the vessel’s gross tonnage, provided that some specified conditions are met.

For other vessels that are not vehicle vessels, but meet the same conditions as the vehicle vessels, fee reduction of 75 per cent will be applied to that part of the fairway dues based on the vessel’s gross tonnage, provided that the vessels operate in a regular liner service and are sailing the entire route.

There is no longer a fee reduction for unloaded container goods in transit.
