Wharfage is a fee paid for the use of a wharf or dock, typically for loading and unloading goods from or onto a vessel. It covers charges related to labor, storage, handling, and other associated services provided by the port facility to facilitate freight movement.
Wharfage can be charged on both imports and exports when goods are handled at the port. The fee may also include other costs such as pilotage fees (for navigational assistance), customs duties, taxes, insurance premiums, and other similar charges incurred while using a port’s facilities.
