VOC Port Trust announces 50% concession on VRC for mainline vessels calling VOCPT

It is to inform that Board vide Reso. No. 14 (Agenda No.14) of the Board meeting held on 07.05.2018 has decided to extend 50% concession on Vessel Related Charges (VRC) for mainline vessels calling VOCPT, says the Trade Notice from the VOCPT dated 16 May 2018.

 'Mainline vessel/Mother vessel' refers to "Container vessels which are calling beyond the transhipment hub viz. Colombo, Port Kelang, Singapore, Penang and Salalah, etc' will be treated as Mainline/Mother Container Vessel.

 The concession is applicable from 01.04.2018 to 31.03.2019. For the convenience of mainline vessel operators necessary provisions have already been made to remit the charges duly availing the concession on real time basis at the time of payment of VRC to the Port on every call.

  Considering the 50% concession on VRC extended to mainline vessels, all main line vessel operators/shipping lines may plan to call their mainline vessels at VOC Port and add VOC Port in their Port of call.
