Demurrage and Detention

Applicable from 1/1/2017

Our setup in Italy consists of two elements: Combined Detention and Demurrage and Storage

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 (presently named Detention), Compensation related, but not limited to the utilization of the port, terminal or depot facilities will be charged separately as Storage (presently named Demurrage)

Storage start to apply as from GATE IN to SAME DAY of LOAD. Reefer include Electricity and Monitoring.

Combined Detention and Demurrage starts to apply as from GATE OUT EMPTY to SAME DAY of LOAD,

Calculation is based on CALENDAR days.
