COMBINED SHIPPING CHARGES

Many of you will have noticed that our invoices seem to get longer and longer. They now resemble a short version of war and peace. The main reason for this is the never ending list of new charges being introduced by the shipping lines and port authorities. In an effort to reduce the items on our invoices we will be combining the local charges paid to the shipping lines under one line titled “Australian Port Charges”. The charges being combined under this title are currently listed as Terminal Handling Charge, Port Service Charge, Lift On Lift Off (LO/LO), International Port Security and Shipping Line Document Fee.
It is important to note that you will still pay the same amount however it will now be combined under one line. This will take effect from the 1st March 2015.
