$1200 at the pier?

So my 110 finally cleared customs today and I received an invoice from my destination handler, Atlantic Cargo Logistics, for $1200. I already paid SCL in Rotterdam 1000 Euro for shipping. The reason they say is because the container was pulled for "an intensive scan" including an X ray. The $1280 is broken down as follows-- 50% of "arrival notice and intensive scan"- $640, customs broker-$150, Handling fee--$325, another handling fee--$200. And he wants the money wired. Is this legit? I thought I paid for shipping when I left Europe???

If you want your truck you have no choice. Shipping is totally seperate than importation. The shipping fee gets your shipment dockside here and then the register starts ringing again. If you shipped in a container this was a low price.
