The Maritime Authority of Suriname has issued an updated “Notice for the Nautical Accessibility of the Suriname River.”

This notice stipulates that the maximum draft of vessels will be reduced with 50cm versus the previous notice.
This has an effect of reducing cargo capacity on all vessels in and out of Suriname.
