Tanzania - TCBF fee

We have been informed that since 1 July 2000 the Tanzania Central Freight Board (TCFB) has levied a fee in respect of cargoes loaded from or landed at Tanzanian ports, and that petroleum shipments are included.  The tariff is structured according to the origin of the cargo in question and ranges from USD 0.25 to USD 0.30 per tonne of cargo. Whereas the fee is “placed by law on the shipowner”, Worldscale has found that this charge will have to be “for Charterers Account” because the costs vary by route.  This cost item will therefore not be correctly compensated through one “Fixed differential”.
