Revisited and New Fees

Effective 1st March 2021 there will be further landside Infrastructure Surcharges, a re-introduction of the side-loader fee for Patrick Terminal and a new long vehicle fee.

These fees are being charged by the transport companies and ultimately being passed down the supply chain and onto the importers.

Revisited and New Charges:

Terminal Access Charge –  This charge has been on the increase and it seems stevedores have the state government on their side endorsing the incremental escalation.

Side-loader Fee – This fee was firstly introduced in 2012 and justified by the fact that sideloaders were required to complete deliveries.  This is now being re-introduced after it was initially removed by Patrick Terminals year ago.  Other terminals around the country have already been charging this fee.

Long vehicle fee  – This is a new fee introduced by Patrick Terminals, for truck and trailer combinations of more than 26m long that require access to the Autostrad grid.
