Abstract

This report compares tariff structure and actual tariff levels of 21 ports in 17 countries across Asia and the Pacific against the ESCAP/United Nations Development Programme Model Port Tariff structure. The comparison is based on two hypothetical types of container ships, namely 3,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) and 1,100 TEU ships. A range of issues were identified from the study with regard to tariff setting models: costing approaches, the impact of exchange rates, capacity to adjust rates, the impact of privately operated ports and the price setting approach of ports and governments.
