Demurrage: the fine you pay when you leave your stuff at the quayside(or in the port generally) longer than agreed (i.e. after it's supposed to have been put on a ship and sent far, far away)

Drayage: the charge for using, originally, a horse drawn cart to take away your stuff about and, of course, from the port lest you suffer demurrage.

Dunnage: loose wood used to protect cargo whilst it's in the hold.
