Guarantee for shipping dues

Fairway dues and the guarantees required for them are provided for by national legislation. However, the intention has been to harmonise the guarantee categories and the related requirements with guarantees provided for by EU legislation.

When defining a guarantee, the average amount of the customer’s fairway due debt is taken into account in accordance with the customer’s guarantee category. The guarantee is determined based on an average seven-week fairway due invoicing period. A guarantee is not required for guarantee type BD.

In certain cases, a guarantee can be required in an amount higher than what is described above, for example, in order to prepare for significant seasonal fluctuations or to ensure the payment of taxes.
