The Freightos Freight Information

Who Charges the Telex Electronic Cargo Release/EDI Fee: Forwarder

Charge At: Destination

Telex Electronic Cargo Release/EDI Fee Description: This charge is applied to cover the cost of sending forms and messages to ports, CBP, and other government and quasi-government agencies, either by telex or electronic data interchange (EDI) mode.

Telex Electronic Cargo Release/EDI Fee Tips: This is a classic fee where forwarders are making their profit. And it is a somewhat dubious charge. In the internet era, why are companies still using telexes? And there is no variable cost in an EDI transfer. Therefore, question your forwarder if charged.
