Shipping support activities are those subsidiary activities which are essential to smooth shipping operations. They mainly include such activities as ship or freight brokerage, goods consignment, handling, such as shore cargo handling and stevedoring, forwarding, pilotage, towage, boatage, ships' supplies, marine insurance, goods packing, ticketing and marking, travel agencies and joint cargo services. A systematic and efficient management of each of these activities mainly implies implementing an appropriate tariff policy aimed at securing sufficient financial profitability for investments made in these areas as well as an equitable sharing of the costs incurred by the support enterprise concerned with the various services, goods and traffic involved, so as not to jeopardize the promotion of such services and goods in their respective markets, or the development of shipping traffic in ports.
