USA - HOUSTON, INCREASE OF TUG TARIFF

As from 15 August 2000 the tugboat tariff at ITT, Houston, was increased by approximately 5.3%.

To our knowledge this increase has not been properly advised to the industry previously.

INTERTANKO has approached ITT, Houston, and requested postponement of implementation for two months.  In his reply Mr. Wm. Lamar Doyle, President of ITT writes:  “We have visited with all our tanker owner/operator customers who inquired or expressed concern with our recent tariff increase and have answered all questions posed to us.  Therefore, regrettably we will not be able to accommodate your request to postpone the implementation of the new tariff”.

We have advised the Worldscale Association, London, regarding the new tariff, and will revert with their comments when received.
