Additional Information

Important information is listed below for each service. If you have more questions please contact us and we will be happy to help you.

TARIFF DATABASE MAINTENANCE:

According to FMC regulations, all FMC-regulated Ocean Common Carriers, NVOCCs, and Marine Terminal Operators are required to maintain a complete and accurate record of each tariff published for five years. DPI maintains each customer’s tariff in an online database in compliance with FMC regulations. To recover costs associated with this requirement we assess an annual fee of $432 per customer. DPI does not assess a minimum monthly fee; if a tariff is not updated, no charges are incurred beyond the annual database maintenance fee.

NEGOTIATED RATE ARRANGEMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM:

As an optional service, DPI offers an NRA Management System (NRAMS) to assist its NVOCC customers with FMC requirements for Negotiated Rate Agreements (NRAs). This system maintains NRA history in a secure database and includes built-in quality controls to ensure NRA data is created and maintained in compliance with FMC regulations. The annual fee for NRAMS is $396.

ASSESSORIALS & TABLES:

As an optional service, DPI can provide assessorials and table programming to support “bottom-line rate” calculation.

ADOBE PDF TARIFFS:

Each tariff publishing customer is provided with their own tariffs in Adobe PDF format at no added charge. The Adobe PDF tariffs created by DPI provide complete tariff information in a single file using traditional tariff page format and bookmarks that make them easy to navigate. Please see PDFs or My Downloads on our web site for details.

FMC REGULATORY CONSULTATION & RESEARCH:

DPI offers its expertise to clients seeking to understand FMC regulations applicable to service contracts, agreements, Special Permission, Docket Applications, and FMC Applications. Contact us for more information.
