Following a review of terminal charges, all major ports in Sydney and Melbourne are set to increase their Terminal Infrastructure Levy commencing March 27th 2018.

DP World Australia has released the following statement
 “DPWA continues to face one of the most difficult markets in decades, arising from over capacity in the local stevedoring market, larger ships, the consolidation of shipping lines, as well as increased costs – including significant energy cost increase of 45% this last year along with property and rent related cost increases of 266% over the last decade.  DPWA is facing these challenges with a determination to continue to improve our service levels, efficiencies and invest in landside equipment and terminal capacity to handle greater peaks in container volumes. The highly competitive and challenging environment demands that we continue to monitor and adjust our tariff structures to respond to the changing market conditions”

Terminal Infrastructure Fee is passed on to our customers at cost, from 27th March 2018 the fee vary between
AUD 40.00 and AUD 55.00 per TEU

As always we maintain clear and transparent invoicing with this fee being listed as separate line on your FCL invoice.
