Brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) risk season coming up

The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) season runs from the 1st of September 2022 until the 31st of May 2023. This means that all bookings from the 1st of September will incur a fumigation fee for all high-risk countries.

To avoid loadings from high-risk countries, we have solved this matter most effectively by having a weekly service from Aarhus with a great capacity to Australia and New Zealand, as Denmark isn’t a high-risk country.

We would also like to highlight our consolidation service to Sydney, a stable direct service from Aarhus to avoid overlay in Singapore, not affected by BMSB.

In the link below, we have found the most asked questions online about high-risk countries and possible target cargo to be inspected via Hamburg – feel free to take a look.
