    The port fees are calculated using the information indicated in Ciby the vessel agent or bulk vessel agent. The characteristics of the vessel entered in Ci5 such as the type of vessel, the dimensions of the vessel, the tonnage, the nature of the call, etc. are associated with the tariffs applicable at the port of loading and discharge. The tariff is updated by the port authority every year.

    to be completed

    to be completed

    The vessel declaration must be made by the vessel’s primary agent/consignee for the port of call.

    Port dues tariffs are integrated in Ci5 by the port authority to allow for calculations, but are not available for general consultation. However, it is possible to check them via the vessel declaration.

    It is up to the port authority of each port equipped with a CCS to define in which system the port fees are calculated.
