Embassy Logistic Terms: LWS
– LWS is the abbreviation for Low Water Surcharge.
A Low Water Surcharge is charged by carriers when the water level of a river is so low, that it affects the loading capacity of a ship.
This means that fewer containers can be loaded on board. Shipping companies compensate for this by introducing a low water surcharge.
