Container Fees For Sea Freight

- Jun 21, 2018-

Nowadays, the freight rate system of container goods is more mature than inland freight rates. Basically, it is divided into two major categories. One is the calculation of the freight of the grocer for attack, that is, per freight ton as a unit (commonly known as bulk cargo), the other is for each container as a billing unit (commonly known as the package price).

1, the basic rate and surcharge of the grocer: (1) the basic rate -- with the reference to the traditional grocery freight, the freight ton is the calculation unit, and the grade rate is adopted on most routes.

(2) surcharge - except for the conventional surcharge received by traditional groceries, there are additional surcharges related to the carriage of container goods.

2, package rate (BOX RATE): this rate takes each container as the billing unit, commonly used in the case of container delivery, that is, CFS-CY or CY-CY, and the common package rate has the following three forms:

(1) FAK FREIGHT FOR ALL KINDS, that is, freight charges that are not charged within each container, excluding cargo (within important limits).

(2) FCS packet box rate (FREIGHT FOR CLASS) - the rate of package box fees according to different grade of goods, the grade division of the general container goods is the same as that of the grocery transportation, which is still 1-20, but the rate difference of the container goods is much smaller than the difference of the grocer rate, and the general low grade container charge is higher than the traditional and high price collection. Packing is less than traditional transportation; freight of heavy cargo is higher than volume freight at the same grade. It can be seen that the shipping company encourages people to pack and transport high priced and bulk cargo. In this rate, the calculation of carbox freight charges is the same as that of traditional transportation, according to the name of the goods, calculate the standard, and then take the corresponding rate, multiplied by freight tons, that is, freight.

(3) FCB packet rate (FREIGHT FOR CLASS or BASIS) - this is the rate based on different cargo grades or cargo classes and calculation standards.
