– All liquid bulk cargo dues are to be capped at R40.00/kl
– The tariffs below these upper limit caps in the categories above will remain at 2018/19 tariff levels, excluding coal dry bulk export cargo dues as set out above.
The incentive for South African flagged vessels will be extended for three years. All marine tariffs for existing commercial South African flagged vessels as well as commercial vessels registered in South Africa in 2019/20 will receive a 30% discount applicable year on year up to 31 March 2022. Vessels registered in South Africa in 2020/21 will receive a 20% discount applicable year on year up to 31 March 2022 and similarly a vessel registered in 2021/22 will receive a 10% discount up to 31 March 2022.
