A wharfage charge is a port duty. It includes both spaces. Dock space is a combination of the space allocated for loading, unloading, and storing cargo as well as the charge imposed by the dock owner. Terminal handling charges or base freight rates often include the charge.
The freight terminal charges a fee on goods that pass through it. Inspecting, loading, unloading, demurrage, sorting, weighing, marking, sampling, and any other charges levied by the government or state are not included.
Regardless of the mode of transportation, port owners charge for all freight that passes through the facility and is handled by the facility. Wharfage charges are imposed by port-owning authorities on carriers, who then pass the costs on to their customers in the form of fee tariffs.
