AGAIN A DOUBLE CHARGING SITUATION IN NOVOROSSIYSK HAS DEVELOPED

Several reports have been sent to INTERTANKO by members and local sources informing us that as from 22 February 2000 the pilotage dues are going to be charged twice by two separate authorities in Novorossiysk.

The reason for this unprofessional development is the decision of the Novo Maritime Administration to charge and include the pilotage dues in their invoices to owners through agents.  We understand that the Novo Mor Pilots do not accept this procedure and are charging separately threatening not to provide pilotage service unless their demands are met.

INTERTANKO has approached the Ministry of Transport, Moscow, again requesting their intervention and assistance in solving this unfortunate situation.  For further information, please contact gunnar.knudsen@intertanko.com
