Demurrage and Detention

Applicable from 1st April 2018

Our setup in Cyprus consists of one element: Combined Detention and Demurrage.

This means you will have one combined free time-period and compensation for utilization of equipment inside and outside of terminals or depots, referred to as Combined Demurrage & Detention.  

Combined Detention and Demurrage starts to apply as from SAME DAY of DISCHARGE until GATE IN EMPTY. 

Calculation is based on CALENDAR days

Procedures

Demurrages are always charged to consignees who delay the return of the empty containers to the port terminal. When consignees arrange by themselves the road transportation of the containers to their warehouse, it is their responsibility to liaise with their hauliers for the timely return of the containers.

Maersk Cyprus Limited will undertake Road Transportation and Customs Clearance if requested.
