US may cut port fees for owners of quality ships

INTERTANKO welcomes the news of possible cuts in US port fees for quality ships.

INTERTANKO’s Managing Director, Dagfinn Lunde commented “the idea of rewarding quality ships by receiving a reduction in port fees and fewer inspections is very much in line with INTERTANKO’s way of thinking and INTERTANKO urges US ports to take part in the regime”.

INTERTANKO welcomes incentives for owners that are operating quality fleets and encourages measures that will result in fewer inspections and less time in port for quality ships.

INTERTANKO is looking forward to remaining engaged in the debate on quality shipping and to working with the US ports and USCG to identify further measures which reward quality tanker shipping.
