Dockage charges will be computed based on the vessel classification and LOA (length overall) of the vessel(s) as published in LLOYD’S REGISTER OF SHIPPING per the following schedule. Charges are stated per linear foot, unless otherwise indicated, of the vessel(s) and are applicable, per each 24 hour period, or fraction thereof. The 24 hour period begins at the time the vessel or barge moors and ends when the vessel or barge unmoors. A minimum dockage charge of $900.00, per vessel or barge, per day, will be assessed. Dockage is assessed against the vessel or its local agent. Dockage shall be paid by the party so assessed before the vessel leaves the Authority’s terminals unless the said party has established credit with the Authority. See Notes

Vessels making regularly scheduled calls to the Authority’s facilities may be granted early dockage, subject to the following conditions:
1. Berth availability and the approval of the Authority’s Ship Operations Department;
2. Docking is performed the evening prior to the vessel beginning to work, and with labor scheduled not later than 0800 hours the following morning;
3. Dockage charge will commence at 0600 hours.
If early dockage is granted, any other negotiated dockage rates may not apply, particularly if the result is no dockage assessment whatsoever.
Vessels making regularly scheduled calls to the Authority’s facilities may be granted, upon request, idle dockage at one-half of the published schedule dockage rate, subject to the dockage minimum charge, and based on berth availability and at the discretion of the Authority’s Ship Operations Department. Examples of when idle dockage may be granted are vessel repair and governmental seizure.
U.S. Navy vessels, or foreign naval vessels, making infrequent visits of short duration for recreation, or open house (Liberty calls), will be provided a berth, at no charge, on a space-available basis with prior written approval from the Authority’s Ship Operations Department. When a berth is made available at the Authority’s Ocean Terminal, Gate 7 must be used for egress and ingress.
Vessels of other U.S. Government Agencies will be accommodated, at no charge, on a space-available basis.
The Authority will not assess dockage charges to the ocean carriers for the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, and Christmas Day.
