It will range from $7 to $10 per cbm or, as Qube did, be a fixed amount of $30 per House Bill.
This new fee is introduced for similar reasons to the Stevedores Infrastructure Surcharges which are said to be introduced due to increased costs in operations on and arounds Australia’s port precincts.
A fee of between $15 and $20 per House Bill is also being introduced on Airfreight consignments.
Local carriers are also introducing an FCL Infrastructure levy of bewteen $13 and $25 per container.
