Terminal Charges or terminal Handling Charges refer to the expenses incurred due to the operations carried out at the port terminals during the containers' arrival, transfer, or export stages. During the transfer of containers or partial parcels, all transactions that must be carried out within the port and customs area are priced under the name of handling charges. For example, unloading, transporting and stacking. Sometimes a container or parcel needs to be moved inside the port or warehouse. THC covers these processes.
