Five types of charges that must be watched for when picking up containers at the destination port (below): 2018-07-07 09:20:00 3 Off-site trailer usage fees The off-site trailer usage fees are generated because the trailer and the container to be picked up are not in the same location. the same place. In this case, the shipper shall bear the cost of the vehicle dealers first go to the designated storage yard to fetch the trailers and then to the storage yard to pick up the containers. The designated trailer yard is responsible for the management and assignment of the extraction and return of all trailers and the joint terminal and train yard to ensure that there are enough trailers for the use of trailers. The fee for the use of off-site trailers is generally only determined before delivery. This situation is similar to the second container lifting fee mentioned above. When the container is transferred, because there is no trailer, the container cannot be directly loaded on the trailer and needs to be placed on the ground first. When there is a trailer, the container is then hoisted onto the trailer. . The two costs are somewhat similar. The cost of 4 three-axle frame may not be very familiar to everyone, but you have undoubtedly seen three-axle vehicles. As the name implies, a three-axle vehicle refers to a trailer with three axles. For example, heavy dump trucks or tractors are usually equipped with a third set of wheels or drive shafts to carry heavy cargo. Some chassis are also equipped with a standard tandem drive shaft and third shaft to allow the chassis to carry more weight. When equipped with a three-axle frame, the container using this frame can carry a heavier weight. If the shipper’s cargo is heavy, the shipper will generally require the use of a three-axle vehicle. For example, if a container containing granite and stones is very heavy, the shipper may specifically require the towing company to use three-axle equipment for hauling. Sometimes, in order to ensure that the weight of the goods meets the legal requirements, the towing company must use the frame, which will result in tri-axle fees. In these cases, the towing company must charge the shipper this additional fee. 5 Withholding fees If the shipper is unable to deliver before the 'last free day' (last free day), in order to avoid terminal storage costs, it is a very good practice to withhold the container and transport it to a nearby yard. Under this assumption, the trailer driver will transport the container and place it in their container yard until they receive an order that can be dispatched. The withholding fee is about one-third of the yard storage fee. Another situation may be that when the goods arrive on the weekend or close to the weekend or during a holiday, the shipper cannot deliver on the same day.
