    collect freight charges, etc due on shipments - meaning

    Hello everybody!

    Pay any collect freight charges, custom house brokerage fees, etc due on shipments.

    In my opinion, collect freight charges, custom house brokerage fees, etc due on shipments are all some sort of fees or payments that shoud be deducted, as percentage, from shipments.

    Am I right?

    The context is below.

    Receive, ship, handle and store owner’s material
    Furnish labor, material and equipment to accomplish the following:
    Receive owner’s material as delivered to Shipyard. Pay any collect freight charges, custom house brokerage fees, etc due on shipments. Properly store material and, when directed, deliver to the vessel.
    Receive any material removed from vessel.

    Thank you.

    I assume that these are fees that have to be paid up front on arrival. This will be included in the bill later.
