port charges in Santos for removals (São Paulo)

can anyone help me?
i am bringing all my furniture from the UK and it has just been given the green light at Santos. The agents here are now charging me a fortune to release it. Although i always knew there were gonna be charges i was led to believe they were going to cost much less.
one particular charge, agents Union (despachantes) I find particularly absurd. why should i pay that?
I'd like to know where i can check whether these amounts are genuine charges and whether i am really bound to pay all of them or whether they are just pushing extra things on to me.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
