Container Service Charges (CSC or THC) are additional costs, on top of the sea freight, charged by the shipping company for the handling of containers at the container terminal before being loaded onboard a vessel.

Examples include the unloading of the container from a truck, stacking and transport from the stacking location to just below the crane. This concerns FCL (Full Container Load) shipments.


Transport by air or by sea can be complicated. You benefit from a carrier who will take over all your logistic requirements.
