It's just optimising travel costs.

Do you think every individual packet of Anchor butter imported in a container should pay a Steam Racket 'Commercial fare'?

You are just being bloody stupid now for the sake of it.

 I'm out of here now, as I want to tell someone to f*** off and that would not be acceptable to the mods.

The more fiddles that go on in that period, the more you and I will pay during the rest of the year.

Unlikely.  The Steam Packet's standards fares are capped, not their profits (not even in a desultory, Manx Gas sort of way).  The more money they take over TT, the happier a Portuguese bank will be, but there's no need for them to pass on savings.

You see this is where you are getting silly. Butter comes across in a container that has paid a commercial rate. Thereby negating your silly antagonistic comments.

No you're being silly (and accusationas of being "silly" are interesting anyway as that is interesting use of language) as Albert makes a good point. If you bring over a packet of butter in your own car no commercial rate applies. It's only a commercial rate if you are commercially doing it. If you are returning from a picnic with 3 packets of butter in your car that's just living your life. No different to letting a few mates stick a few bikes in the back of your van (not for any profit) as that's just helping out a mate. It's not acting in a commercial capacity.

But what about losses ?

Really? Read this thread again after a good nights kip dilli. And think about what the Steam Racket are trying to achieve here.

G'nite fer now.

They are a commercial concern, not a charity for tight fisted bikers.
