Considering the recent changes in some obligations imposed by Santos Port Authority (SPA), the service of mooring and unmooring will no longer be their responsibility. Some marine terminals are taking this responsibility and will charge the agency of the vessel. This will be passed to the party in charge of PDA payment as “port expense”. This new cost will be compulsory for vessels moored/unmoored as from June 24th 2020. At Copersucar Terminal (Shed 20/21), the cost that will be applied is R$ 1.800,00 per maneuver ( about USD 345,00) being R$ 3.600,00 for in and out maneuvers. Rumo Terminal has announced that the mooring/unmooring services will be performed by their own personnel as from June 24th to attend the demand of Port Authorities. The cost to be applied is R$ 2,100, per maneuver (about Usd 408,00 at today´s roe) totalling R$ 4.200,00 for in/out maneuvers (about USD 816,00). This cost will be inserted onto vessel´s PDA sent to disponent owners or to responsible part to settle the port expenses. Terminal TES (Dreyfus/Cargill) will charge for mooring/unmooring R$ 2.925,00 (about USD 560,34) and for shifting by ropes alongside R$ 2.625,00 (about USD 502,87). Tiplam Terminal and Terminals TEG and TEAG will continue NOT charging for mooring/unmooring.
