Cargo Dues – abbreviated to read CD – is a fee levied by TNPA (Transnet Port Authority) to the users (exporters, importers or shipping lines) for using the port facilities for movement of the cargo through it. This fee is generally fixed and published in a tariff by TNPA for a year (April to March) and whatever tariff is ruling at the time of the shipment will apply. Tonnage Dues: This is a charge paid by the vessel operator to a port for the usage of the port. This is usually calculated on the net registered tonnage of the ship as per the tonnage certificate issued for that ship. Port Dues : This is a charge levied by the port to all ships entering the port till the time it leaves the port. This is generally calculated on the gross registered tonnage of the ship as per the tonnage certificate issued for that ship.
