Papua New Guinea – Terminal Handling Charge Increase

Papua New Guinea – Terminal Handling Charge Increase

Maersk Line would like to advise customers of an increase to the Terminal Handling Charge (THC) in Papua New Guinea, effective 1 January 2015.

 Whilst the increase includes the annual THC adjustment, Maersk Line wishes to highlight the significant increase is a result of the National Maritime Safety Authority (NMSA) surcharge.

 The National Maritime Safety Authority of Papua New Guinea made significant revisions to the current fee structure, which is applied to all international shipping lines making port calls into Papua New Guinea.
