PATRICK INCREASES TERMINAL ACCESS CHARGES

Patrick Terminal has announced an increase to Terminal access charges. This is another increase on levies applied by Terminals.

The freight and trade alliance representing the Freight and Customs industry and their affiliate organization Peak Shippers representing importers and exporters have petitioned the national transport commission to regulate that Terminal operators apply their various fees directly to the shipping line who negotiate and appoint the operator.

Effective from 7 March 2022, the following Landside charges are intended to apply on full containers that enter and leave Patrick’s terminals. Patrick will continue to provide a concessional rate for export containers, recognising the continuing challenges faced by Australian exporters.

Import Containers

  • Sydney $141.45 per full container
  • Fisherman Islands $135.85 per full container
  • East Swanson Dock $155.40 per full container
  • Fremantle $57.69 per full container

Export Containers

  • Sydney $101.90 per full container
  • Fisherman Islands $101.90 per full container
  • East Swanson Dock $101.90 per full container
  • Fremantle $28.84 per full container


Please see the following notice from the FTA further explaining the objections to the increases (FTA notice 07012022.pdf).
