Validity start from 1st July 2016

1. Scope

1.1. The port area that is subject to payment of port fees under these Fee Regulations covers the following parts of the public port of the Hansestadt Lübeck that are operated by the LHG and are  governed  by  the  Regional  Regulations  for  the  ports  in  Schleswig-Holstein  (Port Regulations HafVO) as revised at the time, come under the scope according to § 1.  

-  Terminal Burgtorkai (formerly a Cruise terminal)
-  Terminal Konstinkai (extending from the Eric-Warburg-Brücke to warehouse 29)
-  Terminal Nordlandkai
-  Terminal Ostpreußenkai (Cruise terminal)
-  Terminal Seelandkai
-  Terminal Skandinavienkai
-  Terminal Schlutupkai II  

1.2.    According  to  this  Fee  Regulation  the  LHG  is  in  charge  as  far  as  no  other  responsibility  has been agreed. The LHG reserves the right to entrust a third party with the accounting, assertion and acceptance of the fees.

2. General Conditions

2.1 The contractual relationship and the obligation to pay fees arise on the date of the order confirmation for the utilization applied for, in all other cases they arise with the commence-ment of the actual utilization and/or the actual berthing period in the respective LHG-operated port area.

2.2 Any utilizations that are subject to a separate contractual arrangement, are exempted from the obligation to pay a fee under this Fee Regulation. The mere transit does not constitute a utilization of the port.

2.3 If not otherwise specifically agreed, invoices for fees shall be payable in EURO within 14 days from the date of invoice without deduction. Money transfer charges shall be payable by the debtor of the fee.

2.4 The LHG may call for a prepayment with the order confirmation for the requested utilization or in the other cases at the commencement of the utilization. The amount of such a prepayment shall conform to the claim for fee arising for the intended utilization and shall become due for payment on receipt of the invoice. Fees may be calculated and collected right in place.

2.5 The debtors of the fee are the ordering party and the user. Where vessels or other floating bodies are involved, the owner, the party entitled to utilization and the operator are deemed to be users. The debtors of the fee are joint and several debtors.

2.6 In the event of default in payment, the debtor shall pay interests at a rate of 8 per cent p.a. in excess of the then current interest rate in accordance with Section 247 Civil Code (BGB).

2.7 The creditor of the fees is the Lübecker Hafen-Gesellschaft mbH (LHG).

2.8 Where fees are subject to value-added tax, the latter will be added to all fees at the rate in force at the time.

3. Obligation to notify the Utilization

3.1 All intended utilizations and/or prolongations of utilization are required to be notified to the Hansestadt Lübeck and LHG (independent of the obligation to pay fees), and all data and documents required for the calculation of fees must be submitted. Reference is made to the paramount regulations issued by the port authorities for the public port areas in the Hansetadt Lübeck concerning the obligation to notify the utilizations. The Hansestadt Lübeck is responsible for the allocation of berthing places in accordance with the Port Utilization Regulations for the public port areas in the Hansestadt Lübeck.

3.2 The data required for the calculation of port fees and for statistical purposes must be entered into the tonnage registration cards (Zählkarten) immediately after arrival. These cards are obtainable from the Hansestadt Lübeck, Department of Hafen- und Seemannsamt, and must be returned, on completion, to that Department together with the ship’s tonnage certificate. The ship’s loading and discharging documents as well as the transport papers must be submitted upon request.

3.3 Where any statements are missing or not credible, or where any statements are found to be incorrect, the LHG will assess the data required for the fee calculation. Any additional costs incurred by the LHG due to this assessment, shall be refunded to the LHG by the debtor of the fee. Where it is not possible to assess the data or if it is only possible with the ex-panditure of an unreasonable amount of costs, the LHG is authorized to make an estimation of the fee.

3.4 Vessels or other floating bodies operating in a regular liner service shall be notified to the Hansestadt Lübeck and the LHG prior to putting the liner service into operation. The notification must refer to the name of the vessel or other floating body, the region of operation, and the port of call. Any changes in the liner service shall be reported to the Hansestadt Lübeck and the LHG.

3.5 If a party is liable to pay fee for utilization of the port facilities but evades its obligation e.g. by failing to notify the utilization, must refund the additional expenses arising in connection with the investigation and assertion of the claim.

4. Principles of Calculation

4.1. The basis for the calculation of the port and berthing fees is:  

4.1.1. The  cubic  measure  according  to  the  gross  ton  index  (BRZ)  as  shown  in  the  international London Tonnage Certificate ITC 1969.

4.1.2. The  maximum  deadweight  carrying  capacity  according  to  the  gauged  tonnage  shown  in  the gauge certificate for inland waterway vessels used for commercial cargo carriage.

4.1.3. Number  of  passengers  admitted  and  conveyed  according  to  the  determination  of  the  LPA  for vessels used in the commercial passenger services.

4.1.4. The length over all or the water surface in m² as the product resulting from the maximum length and breadth of the vessel or other floating body.

4.1.5. For  vessels  or  other  floating  bodies  entering  or  leaving  the  LHG-operated  parts  of  the  port without  discharging  and/or  loading  cargo,  the  port  utilization  fee  is  reduced  by  50%  in  the respective direction of the ship’s course.  

4.1.6. The sliding scale for port fees is only applicable to vessels or other floating bodies operating in a regular liner service. If these vessels or other floating bodies change to another charterer, owner or shipping company, the sliding scale for port fees applied prior to the change will not be taken into account.

4.1.7. Where  a  vessel  operating  in  a  regular  liner  service  is  replaced  by  another  vessel,  either  on  a temporary or permanent basis, the calls made by the replaced vessel will be considered in the sliding  scale  system.  This  does  not  apply  to  additional  vessels  operating  in  the  same  regular service. Further subsequent replacements of vessels will not be considered.  

4.2. Basis for the calculation of Port Fees:

4.2.1. For the conversion of timber cargo according to cubic measure, 2 m³ or 2 solid m³ are equal to 1,000 kilos  

4.2.2. The calculation of StoRo-cargo carriers is made according to Item 6.3.4 and 6.3.5.  

4.2.3. Stacks of empties are equal to one cargo carrier.

4.3. Obligation to pay fees does not arise for:  

4.3.1. Vessels and other floating bodies in the service of authorities.  

4.3.2. Vessels or other floating bodies used for the general operation and/or security of the port as far as no permanent berthing place has been provided. 

4.3.3. Vessels  of  foreign  governments  and  training  ships  that  are  used  for  governmental  or  training purposes.

4.3.4. Vessels  supplying  other  ships  berthed  in  the  port  with  provisions,  equipment,  fuel  and  fresh water or disposing of their waste, used oil etc. without making use of the port facilities.  

4.3.5. The change of the berthing area within the scope of this Fee Regulation.

4.3.6.Provisions, equipment, fuel and fresh water which is taken on board for the vessel’s own use, as well as drivers of the trucks and coaches parked on board the vessel.
