Port pricing

About the Reference Tariff Schedule

Port of Melbourne operates under a regulatory framework overseen by the Essential Services Commission that outlines how tariffs are set to recover the cost of port facilities and assets required to provide Prescribed Services. Prescribed Services are defined under section 49 of the Port Management Act 1995 (Vic) and include channel services, berthing services, short-term storage and cargo marshalling facility services and other services that allow access to, or use of, places or infrastructure (including wharves, slipways, gangways, roads and rail infrastructure).

In setting its prices for Prescribed Services, Port of Melbourne must comply with requirements in the Pricing Order – a regulatory instrument made by the Governor in Council under section 49A of the Port Management Act. Under the Pricing Order, tariffs are subject to an annual increase of no more than CPI on the 1st of July each year. The 2020-21 Reference Tariff Schedule (RTS) outlines Port of Melbourne’s tariffs for Prescribed Services that apply from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021.
