What is Terminal Handling Charge (THC)?

Terminal handling charge (THC) is a fee that is charged by terminal operators or carriers for the handling of cargo at a terminal. The fee is intended to cover the costs associated with the loading and unloading of cargo, as well as other services provided by the terminal, such as storage and customs clearance. THC is typically calculated based on the weight or volume of the cargo, and it can vary depending on the terminal, location, and type of cargo.
