What is a Tariff?

A tariff is a schedule of charges or fees that a shipping company or carrier applies to specific goods or services. It is a document that outlines the cost of transporting goods from one place to another, and it is typically based on the weight, volume, and nature of the cargo. Tariffs can vary depending on the mode of transport, the origin and destination of the shipment, and the level of service required.

Tariffs can also include surcharges, fees, and taxes that apply to specific goods or services. Shipping companies are required to publish their tariffs so that customers can have a clear understanding of the costs involved in shipping their goods.
