Further to TCF's Broadcast recently in January 2020 regarding the increased Port Infrastructure fees at Australian ports being levied by DP World and Patricks, please note that all ports across all states in Australia have again increased their fees effective 1st March 2020.
TCF understands the impact this surcharge will have but unfortunately with transport companies already passing on the increase, we will need to pass this cost on to our clients.
Effective 1 March, please find below the current FCL Infrastructure fees that will be levied per container as a result of these increases for:

Currently LCL charges remain unchanged as below:

TCF will continue to monitor the situation and these levies and communicate with the transport industry in an effort to keep our customers well informed.
