Demurrage and Detention

Maersk Line will be introducing the following changes to our Fijian surcharge structure starting from 1 January 2017.

Going forward, customers in Fiji will be offered Combined Demurrage & Detention for import shipments. This means you will have one combined free time period and compensation for utilisation of equipment inside and outside of terminals or depots, referred to as Combined Demurrage & Detention Import.

Demurrage means compensation incurred by customer for utilising equipment beyond the given free time inside the terminal.

Detention means compensation incurred by customer for utilising equipment beyond the given free time outside the terminal.

Import tariff charges effective 1 January 2017 

    Import Tariff
Combined Demurrage & Detention
Container Type Day 1-10 Day 11 +
20' Dry Free FJD 20 per day
40' Dry Free FJD 40 per day
20' Reef Free FJD 40 per day
40' Reef Free FJD 50 per day
20' Specialised Free FJD 50 per day
40' Specialised Free FJD 65 per day

 

Separation of Storage

We will separate Storage from Demurrage. This allows a clear distinction of the compensation applied for utilising the port, terminal or depot facilities (Storage), and the compensation incurred for utilisation of equipment beyond the agreed free time days inside terminals or depots (Demurrage).

 

Storage means compensation for utilising the port, terminal or depot or inland container yard facilities. Compensation for Storage related to use of Terminal or Depot facilities will be charged separately by Fijian ports directly to customers.

2016 Demurrage & Detention

Valid from 1 May 2015

Please be informed that Maersk Line will be adjusting our free time and detention tariff for import containers to Fiji, effective 1 May 2015.

The planned changes are intended to better align with the market conditions of our premium weekly service to/from Fiji, whilst also reflecting our continuous drive to encourage the timely return of import containers, thereby optimising the use of the container for its next planned shipment.

Effectively Maersk Line will reduce import free time from 14 days to 10 days as well as apply a slight increase to our import detention rates. Following are the details of our new tariff:

Container type Day 1-10** Day 11-20** Day 21+**
20' Dry Free FJD 20 per day FJD 40 per day
40' Dry Free FJD 40 per day FJD 65 per day
20' Reef Free FJD 40 per day FJD 80 per day
40' Reef Free FJD 50 per day FJD 100 per day
20' Specialised* Free FJD 50 per day FJD 100 per day
40' Specialised* Free FJD 65 per day FJD 130 per day

*Other than the usual types of Dry and Reefer containers (example: Open top/flat rack)
**Weekend and Public holidays are included
