Houston to up its tariffs on January 1, 2009

Houston to up its tariffs on January 1, 2009

The increases are necessary, PHA officials say, to address increased operations costs and escalating expenses and to keep PHA terminals competitive with other ports around the country.

The cumulative effect of this increase will be about 5% at the Turning Basin Terminal, Barbours Cut Terminal and Bayport Container Terminal. Affected rates include wharfage, dockage, container crane rental, throughput rates, container storage, security fee, harbour fees and freight handling.
