Please note that these charges apply at the point of delivery in Ethiopia. Where cargo is moving on through bill there are no charges at Djibouti unless the delay is caused by customer failure to present documents, inability to accept cargo or other cause at request of the customer.


Please note there are no detention charges applicable in Ethiopia at present. With the implementation of the new ICD system expected later in 2009, this may change.
