Assessorial Charges, Special Service Charges

Assessorial charges include any expense not otherwise specifically included in the transportation rate. When the Forwarder is requested to make a delivery to terminal markets, piers, or warehouses or any other location where an entry fee or gate fee is required, and when timely and effective transportation necessitates the use of interlines, storage, driver load, unload, lumper services or results in an assessorial service and expense, the Forwarder will advance the assessed fees or charges (see Advancing Charges). Unless otherwise stated, assessorial charges are applied per occurrence, per shipment. They are in addition to all other applicable charges. They are not subject to prior notice or approval. They are due and payable by the party responsible for the regular freight charges.
