    Suez canal rebates guide: Navigating the rebate system

    The Suez Canal Authority (SCA) has implemented a rebate system as an incentive to attract more ships to use the Suez Canal instead of alternative routes. Knowing how to navigate your way through the rebate system's processes is important to understand as it can result in significant reduction in your vessel's toll fee.
