Pilbara Ports Authority’s Board has approved an increase to port dues at the ports of Dampier and Port Hedland, which will be applied to shipowners.
The increase of 17% is limited to port dues levied on a vessel’s gross registered tonnage (GRT) and equates to between 3 and 4 cents per tonne. This is the first increase in port dues in three years, and is to be implemented by 1 October 2017.
All other port fees remain on hold until 30 June 2018, as announced in December last year.
