Embassy Logistic Terms: Congestion

Due to all sorts of port-related problems, it is possible that the processing of incoming and outgoing vessels is delayed. This is referred to as congestion. In some ports, this delay is of such a structural nature, that the mooring time of vessels in these ports brings on additional costs. To compensate for those costs, an additional surcharge is levied on the sea freight.
