Tropical Shipping Establishes Plug-In Fee for All Refrigerated Containers Destined to Turks and Caicos Ports

Due to charges being assessed to Tropical Shipping by the Turks and Caicos Port Authority for electricity plug-in of refrigerated containers, Tropical Shipping must establish a plug-in fee.

Tropical Shipping will allow 24 hours free electricity plug-in time for refrigerated containers following discharge from our vessels and imported into the Turks and Caicos Islands:  Providenciales, Grand Turk, South Caicos and West Caicos.  Thereafter a plug-in fee will be assessed.

Effective April 9, 2017, a plug-in fee for all refrigerated containers will apply as follows.


Plug-In Fee Effective 4/9/2017

Refrigerated Containers

$85.00 per container, per day



The Plug-In fee will be in addition to the Refrigeration Maintenance Charge and Detention and Demurrage Charges.  The Plug-In fee will be billed on a separate invoice.
