By offering a second call discount, the Port of Rotterdam Authority makes it even more attractive for shipping companies to call at the port of Rotterdam twice during a single deep sea service. The second call discount comprises a discount of 75 per cent on the port dues, which is applied when a deep sea vessel calls on Rotterdam for the second time. This discount applies to general cargo vessels, container vessels, car carriers and roll-on/roll-off vessels.
The second call discount applies to the portion of seaport dues calculated on the gross tonnage of the seagoing vessel. The discount can be requested when submitting the seaport dues statement via the Port Community System and will be settled automatically upon approval.
