INTERTANKO has, in cooperation with the International Chamber of Shipping and its other Round Table partners, lobbied against the announced further increase of the Transit Tariff (as from 1 May 2009) and will continue the dialogue with the ACP with the aim of obtaining further concessions related to transit cost for tankers.
