In further pain for importers and exporters, several LCL DEPOTS around Australia have announced that they will now be charging a "BOOKING FEE" to access their facility and pick up (import) or drop off (export) freight.
This new fee is being charged @ AUD25.00 per Booking.
1 x booking is required per BL, so should you have multiple consignments in the one container, you will have to pay this "X" number of times, reflecting the number of bills of lading you have.
Several depots still have not implemented this and may not. But it would not surprise market, if all LCL depots jump on board.
Transways will have no choice but to pass this fee over to you should it be applied, pending the depot your cargo is unpacked at.
If you wish to discuss how this will impact your cargo, please call one of the team @ Transways.
