Port Announces Consultation on New Pricing Structure 25/09/2015
The Port of Cromarty Firth has announced an overhaul of its pricing structure.  Changes to be announced will see the existing out of date and complicated charging regime replaced with a simplified and transparent model, bringing the Port into line with other Trust Ports across Scotland.

The changes to be introduced are the next stage in the Port’s journey to modernise and are aimed at attracting new customers and encouraging new markets and jobs to the region.

Under the old pricing model a vessel entering the Cromarty Firth paid a complex levy.  Bob Buskie, CEO for the Port of Cromarty Firth, explains “The old model of harbour, mooring, berthing and cargo dues was complicated and acted as a barrier to customers. We are replacing this with one single Vessel Due for entering, using or leaving the Port of Cromarty Firth.  This is in response to client feedback.” 
Bob added “Customers and stakeholders who use the Port will have a chance to review and discuss the new pricing model, which will be available for consultation from mid October.”

The Port of Cromarty Firth is a Trust Port which spans 46 miles of coastline and is home to 6 key marine facilities.  The Port is not funded by the Government, there are no shareholders and the surplus money it generates is used to improve, maintain and manage the harbour on behalf of all stakeholders. 

The Port of Cromarty Firth is close to completing a £25million port expansion, which saw the development of a new deepwater quay and reclamation of 9 acres of land.  The Port has also recently submitted an application to Marine Scotland to invest further in an additional port expansion, details of which are due to go out to public consultation later this year.
