Chen­nai Port of­fers con­ces­sion on exim tran­ship­ment con­tain­ers

Maritime Gateway - - News -

In or­der to en­cour­age tran­ship­ment of exim con­tain­ers at Chen­nai Port, it has been de­cided to grant a flat con­ces­sion of 70 per cent on ves­sel-re­lated charges in the port’s scale of rates for coastal ves­sels car­ry­ing tran­ship­ment con­tain­ers. This con­ces­sion will be in­creased to 80 per cent if the par­tic­u­lar ser­vice crosses 25 voy­ages a year. Sim­i­larly, for for­eign ves­sels, a con­ces­sion of 5 per cent on ves­sel-re­lated charges will be given, in ad­di­tion to the ex­ist­ing con­ces­sions, while han­dling tran­ship­ment con­tain­ers. With these mea­sures, it is ex­pected that tran­ship­ment of In­dian con­tain­ers, which, at present, is hap­pen­ing through neigh­bour­ing in­ter­na­tional ports like Colombo and Sin­ga­pore, will take place through Chen­nai Port.
