A Negotiated Rate Arrangement or NRA is a:
– written and binding agreement
– between an NVOCC and their shipper customer
for ocean freight transportation.
Since 2011, Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCCs) may use NRAs to comply with the U.S. Federal Maritime Commission’s tariff regulations.
NVOCCs that use NRAs are exempt from filing NRA rates in their FMC tariffs, however they must continue to maintain their FMC tariff rules. For more information about DPI’s NRA services, click here.
