An NVOCC Service Arrangement (NSA) is a written contract between an NVOCC and their shipper customer for ocean freight transportation. 

An NSA is a customer-specific rate agreement which requires signatures of both the shipper customer and NVOCC before they may go into effect. NSAs may contain customized surcharges, assessorials, or terms. NSAs are generally considered best for long-term or multiple shipment rates because surcharges are linked to your FMC tariff rules.
