Home > About us > Dues & Fees

Fairway dues are based on four components: readiness fee, vessel based fee, the cargo quantity loaded or unloaded  and number of passengers. The readiness- and vessel based  fee are divided into classes based on the vessel net tonnage. 

For domestic traffic readiness- and vessel based fee is charged for every port call where cargo is loaded. Cargo fee is only charged for loaded cargo.

For international traffic readiness- and vessel based fee is only charged for the first port call. Cargo fee is charged for both loaded and unloaded cargo.

The first two port calls in a month are charged 100 % readiness- and vessel based fee , the third call charged 75 %, fourth call 50 % and the fifth call 25 %. The following calls in the month will not be charged readiness- and vessel based fee, only cargo and passenger fee will be charged.

Cargo-based fees are charged with SEK 2.45 per tonne of cargo loaded and unloaded and with SEK 1.22 for cargo which is referred to as low value goods. Goods regarded as low value are determined by th  Swedish Maritime Administration's regulations (SJÖFS 2019:3) on fairway dues, and are specified on our webpage. Further information regarding low value goods is presented in the following link.

Passenger fee is charged SEK 1.84 per passenger embarked or disembarked. . To the right you will find a link to our translated regulations.

Enviromental differentiation of the vassel-based fee

The vessel-based fee are differentiated according to the vessel's verified Clean Shipping Index (CSI) scores. If the vessel have verifiered scores, the reduced vessel-based fee will be applied automaticly since the Swedish Maritime Administration gets the information from the CSI directly. 

For information regarding the Clean Shipping Index we refere you directly to the Clean Shipping Index via the link to the right.
