The Port Regulator of South Africa has approved an increase to Transnet National Ports Authority (NPA) tariffs averaging 2.5% for the period from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019, gac.com reports.

The tariffs for 2018-19 are to increase as follows: marine services and related tariffs (Sections 1-8 of the Tariff Book, excluding Section 7 that deals with cargo dues) to increase by 8.5%; coal export cargo dues to increase by 8.5%; container cargo dues – no increase (0%); RoRo tariffs - no increase (0%); all other cargo dues to increase by 5.4%; all break-bulk tariffs are capped at R100/ton.

In line with the previous years’ decision, all marine tariffs (Sections 1-8 of the Tariff Book, excluding Section 6 and 7 that deal with ship repair and cargo dues respectively) for existing commercial South African flagged cargo vessels as well as those registered in South Africa in 2016/17 will receive a 30% discount applicable year-on-year up to 31 March 2019. Those registered in South Africa in 2017/18 will receive a 20% discount up to 31 March 2019 and similarly those registered in 2018/19 will receive a 10% discount up to 31 March 2019. Thereafter, the discount will be reviewed.

These reductions only apply to vessels registered as part of chapter 4, part 1 of the Ships Registration Act (58 of 1998) but excludes the following vessels: all “small” vessels as defined in the Merchant Shipping Act; all “fishing” vessels as defined in the Merchant Shipping Act; all non-cargo working vessels.
