DGX - Dependable Global Express


Dear Valued Customer,

On January 1, 2020, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) will impose new emissions standards aimed at significantly decreasing pollution produced by ships all over the globe.  The marine sector will have to reduce sulphur emissions by over 80% by switching to lower sulphur fuels.

As the Ocean Carriers face higher costs meeting compliance with the new regulations, they are beginning to implement low sulfur fuel surcharges. 

DGX will implement a new surcharge to recover these costs as detailed below:




New Surcharge

Effective Date

All US Origins

 All Latin America Destinations


$4.00 W/M -
$4.00 min


Any mitigation and/or delays of the increase will be passed along as applicable.

We appreciate your continued support and understanding of these increases.  

Should you have any questions, please contact your local DGX office or representative, or call us at 888-488-4888 or at 310-669-8888.

Thank you for your business – we appreciate it!
