Additional information

For clients who have accounts with KPA, their accounts will be credited with the KPA charges.
For over dimensional or out of gauge containers, charging is computed upon landing, therefore no free storage period. However, importers can enjoy the free storage period if they request for direct loading once the vessel docks. The applicable charges for the out of gauge containers can be referenced in clauses 14 and 16 of the KPA tariff book.
