Changes to Tariffs for Standard Charges for Prescribed Services for the Port of Darwin

​On 1 July 2019, Darwin Port Operations Pty Ltd (DPO) increased all but one of its charges by 2 per cent. The exception being port induction fees which decreased by $25 over two years due to now being biennial instead of annual.

In accordance with its price determination, the Commission uses the National Consumer Price Index (CPI) to monitor and report on pricing for prescribed services at the Port of Darwin. The 2 per cent increase to DPO’s port charges is marginally higher than the National (CPI) rise for the 12 months to the March quarter 2019, which was 1.8 per cent.

DPO’s updated Tariff Schedule effective 1 July 2019 is available on DPO’s website.
