  DP WORLD TERMINAL CHARGES

DP World has announced that effective from the 3rd April 2017 their terminal Infrastructure Charge will increase in Melbourne from $3 to $32.60 and in Sydney from $0 to $21.14 per container. The fee will be charged to transport companies and is payable within 7 days. Continued access to the terminal will be dependent upon payment of the invoice. CFL subscribes to the point of view that the Terminal Operators should not be able to charge the transport company at all. If they experience an increase in operating costs then they should look to recover from their clients, the shipping lines, like every other business. Submissions have been placed with the ACCC in relation to the new terminal increase. For further details please click here
