Service tax can be levied on freight even if same is included in custom value of imported goods

Service Tax : There is no law that 'if customs duty is chargeable, Service Tax is not leviable on same component'; hence, service tax may be levied on imported service, even if customs duty was already paid thereon by inclusion in customs value
Service Tax : Expenditure or costs incurred by C&F Agent i.e., freight, insurance, loading, unloading, handling charges etc. are excluded from value, only if conditions enumerated in rule 5(2) of Service Tax Valuation Rules, 2006 are satisfied.
