Charleston Amends Security Surcharge

Friday, February 20, 2004
The South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) amended its tariff for the Port of Charleston to add a Terminal Security Surcharge of $1.00 per lineal foot for ships and barges utilizing any terminal within the agency’s jurisdiction. The surcharge is intended to provide a partial offset to increased maritime security measures implemented by the agency, including measures mandated but not compensated by the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002. The tariff amendment ( which was issued on January 29) is shown as coming into effect on March 1, 2004, but there are indications that it might be delayed until July 1, 2004, when the USCG maritime security regulations come into effect.
