When this charge was first implemented in April 2010, Swire Shipping sought to recover the charge, introducing a 'Depot Handling Charge' of AUD 25.00 / container.With the recently advised increase, the Depot Handling Charge will increase to AUD 32.00 / container. The new rate will be applicable to all export containers from 1st November 2011.
