Restow

For many reasons (ship's balance, change of destination from the shipper, operational convenience), a container already loaded on board a vessel might be re-stowed, which means that, at some port along the route, it will be moved from a previous stowage location on board the vessel to another stowage location on board the same vessel. This can sometimes be done on the vessel (ship to ship shifting), but more frequently done via shore/the pier (ship to pier shifting).

Obviously there is a cost involved for the stevedores' work and, if due to a change of destination by the shipper, that cost might be charged to the cargo.
