FMC tariffs are generally made up of two parts:
- rules that affect ocean freight rates, including surcharges and bill of lading terms, and
- ocean freight rates.
Remember FMC regulations only apply to shipments moving between a U.S. ocean port and a foreign country. You may choose to publish tariffs for other trade lanes, but FMC regulations do not require this.
FMC Tariff – Rules
You must ensure that your FMC tariff contains rules reflective of all surcharges and practices that affect the ocean freight rates that you charge your shipper customers. This includes your bill of lading terms and any applicable FMC-required notices.
FMC Tariff – Ocean Freight Rates
Unless you utilize FMC-compliant publication alternatives, you must also ensure that your FMC tariff contains the current ocean freight rates that you charge your shipper customers classified by commodity. Ocean freight rates published in your FMC tariff must meet specific formatting and timing requirements.
