|The Port of Prince Rupert is looking to raise tariffs for use|
of Port Facilities in 2018
Those who make use of the facilities of the Port of Prince Rupert will want to review some proposed tariff revisions that the Port is seeking comment towards, with eight separate fees set for an increase as of March 1st of 2018.
Most of the increases are directed towards the larger vessels that call on the Port's facilities on the North Coast, however some of the fee increase proposals could also have an impact on local users as well.
Among the increased fees that the Port Authority has in mind are:
Harbour Dues -- Increase of 1.55%
Wharfage Fees -- A 1.55% increase applied to all cargoes not otherwise specified, slack wax and container wharfage fees.
Lighterage Fees -- A 1.55% fee increase to be applied to project cargo, logs and all cargoes not specified
Berthage Fees -- An increase of 1.55% for both working and non-working periods.
Dockage Fees -- A 1.55% increase.
Services and Facilities Fees -- Increase Northland port call and security fees by 1.55%, no increase to line handling fees.
Water Service Fees -- Increase of 1.55% for water services at port facilities
Ridley Island Project Cargo Fees -- An increase of 1.55% for loading and unloading fees at the Ridley Island site.
