What are all the charges that I have got?
Importers sometimes contact us when they have received their final bill from their agent and find that it is higher that they anticipated. This may often be where the consignment has been refused entry and destroyed. In these cases there can be several elements to the charge some of which will be from port health and some which will be from the Port of Felixstowe to cover their costs of handling and storing your consignment. You should ask your agent for a break down of the charge, so that you can find out which part of it relates to port health, if you are still concerned about the costs please contact us.
