When moving goods by rail, the fees for moving goods from the location to the port of loading, or from the port to the inland trucking station, are known as inland haulage charges.  The inland haulage charges are different from CFS to CFS, since the distance from CFS to port of loading is different from one location to another.   Inland Haulage Charges – IHC – are collected from shipping lines at the time of Bill of Lading release for export shipments, and at the time of Delivery Order issuance for import shipments.  A charge for inland haulage will only occur if the cargo owner has designated the ocean carrier (shipping line or freight forwarder) to handle the pre- or on-carriage to an inland location.  Comment below your thoughts on this article.
