Tropical Shipping creating THC for Turks and Caicos
Tropical Shipping said Monday it would create a separate destination terminal handling charge for the Turks and Caicos Islands, effective July 29.
The cost has been previously included in the West Palm Beach-based carrier's overall freight rates, so customers will not see an increase in costs to that destination. The company said that by creating a separate line item, it would more accurately reflect cost breakdowns.
The THC will be $80 for 20-foot containers and $160 for 40-foot containers. Costs for other unit breakdowns are available at www.tropical.com.
