Our free time offer is Combined Demurrage & Detention. Standard free time are 7 days combined DnD for DRY and 5 days combined DnD for REEFER/Special .

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, from vessel discharge to gate in empty.

Tariff charges effective 1 January 2018

Please be informed that effective January 1st, 2018 (based on container discharged from vessel at final destination) we will change the calculation method for our import detention and demurrage for customers with special extended free time from traditional to progressive tier structure. After the extended free time expires, any additional days will be subject to the demurrage and detention charges as per the relevant day count in our tariff tier structure. This means that the subsequent demurrage and detention charges beyond extended free time will not automatically be calculated basing on the tariffs of 1st tier as before.

Diinformasikan bahwa mulai 1 Januari 2018 (berdasarkan container sandar dari kapal di pelabuhan akhir), kami akan melakukan perubahan metode perhitungan detention dan demurrage import untuk pelanggan dengan perpanjangan free time khusus dari struktur tradisional ke struktur progresif. Setelah perpanjangan free time berakhir, penambahan hari tergantung pada biaya detention dan demurrage berdasarkan struktur tarifnya. Hal ini menunjukkan bahwa biaya detention dan demurrage yang melebihi freetime tidak akan otomatis terhitung berdasarkan tarif pertama sebelumnya.
Example / Contoh:
Special extended freetime  / Perpanjangan freetime khusus : 14 days / hari
Date of import discharge/ Tanggal kapal sandar import : 1 November
Freetime ends / Freetime berakhir : 14 November
Empty container returned / Pengembalian kontainer kosong : 15 November
Detention and demurrage day  / Hari Detention dan demurrage   : 1
Previous calculation Perhitungan sebelumnya : USD 30 (20 dry) & USD 40 (40 dry)
Future calculation Perhitungan saat ini : USD 50 (20 dry) & USD 70 (40 dry)

Our tariff tier will remain the same as per below.
Tarif tetap sama sebagai berikut.
