PPA asked to reject 37.45% increase in cargo handling fees

Various port user groups have urged the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) to reject the petition by Manila North Harbor Port, Inc. (MNHPI) for a 37.45 percent increase in cargo handling tariff warning this would translate into higher cost of goods and services.

Sulficio Tagud Jr., chairman and president of the Philippine Liner Shipping Association (PLSA) in a 13-page position paper warned that the 37.45 percent increase in cargo handling tariff would more or less translate to a 12.37 percent increase in freight rate which the shipping lines will be constrained to pass on to shippers and eventually to be borne by the consumers by way of a proportionate increase in consumer goods and services.
