Other standards:

  • Detention free time starts counting on the SAME day after discharging of the container at the Port of Discharge i.e. Kolkata or Haldia (as per Bill of Lading).
  • For other special free time grants, after detention free time expires, detention charges start from the slab it would have attracted/fallen as per the Standard Slab/Normal procedure.

Demurrage Charges

Demurrage is paid by the consignee directly to the port/CFS without any Maersk involvement. 


Foreign Consignee Shipments: Will be Retained On Board 

All import shipments to India must have a valid Nepal consignee with full address, without which container cannot be manifested / allowed to discharge as per Indian Customs regulations.
