Shipping Dues

What is it?

SHIPPING DUES is a web application used by ship's agents for berthing declarations.

How does it work?

All ship's agents who are required to declare the quantities of goods loaded and unloaded during a ship's stay in port must register on this web application. Once they have registered, the agent can consult the information on the ship and its stay in port in SHIPPING DUES for the seagoing ships for which they have to make berthing declarations. As soon as the Port Authority has received the loading and unloading information from the freight handlers it is available in SHIPPING DUES. The ship's agent compares this with his own information and if necessary makes corrections or additions, and then sends the declaration to the Port Authority using the application. The Port Dues department checks the declaration and then draws up the invoice in SHIPPING DUES.

What does it cost?

This web application is made available by the Port Authority free of charge.
