Tariff Comparison for Port of Corpus Christi with other Gulf Coast ports
Project Lead: Mike Fisher
The Port of Corpus Christi commissioned a tariff review to better understand how the wharfage and dockage rates in place at the port compare to rates levied at similar ports on the Gulf Coast of the United States. In addition to comparing dockage and wharfage rates, the market analysis also took into consideration port facilities and attributes, and the commodities and cargo volumes being handled at the 14 Gulf Coast ports included in the sample. This effort had a specific focus on liquid bulk wharfage rates, which account for 90 percent of the Port of Corpus Christi’s revenue. The ultimate goal of this study was to provide rate recommendations for specific petrochemicals and refined petroleum products of interest to the Port of Corpus Christi. In the absence of commodity-specific wharfage rate comparisons, the study team analyzed the relationship between the values of commodities of interest and used those relationships to develop wharfage rate adjustments.
