Every organization is different however many of DPI’s clients find that filing tariff rates is the most efficient compliance method.

We recommend that you review the alternatives to tariff rate filing and consider how each alternative would fit into your organization’s protocols. 

As an alternative to tariff rate filing, NVOCCs may enter into Negotiated Rate Arrangements (NRAs) or NVOCC Service Arrangements (NSAs). 

As an alternative to tariff rate filing, VOCCs may enter into Service Contracts (SCs). 

DPI staff are happy to review the alternatives with DPI Members and help them choose the best method(s) of compliance for their organization.
