Effective 15th July 2019, kindly take note of below changes;
- We will be moving from the current calculation of Demurrage and Detention from CALENDAR to WORKING DAYS meaning that Sundays & Public holidays falling within the freetime period are to be excluded from the number of freedays allocated. Post freetime all days irrespective of whether a Sunday or Public holiday, are chargeable.
- Start date of the calculation will be based on the actual container discharged day as communicated to us by the terminal.
- Demurrage and Detention invoices from Maersk will be sent directly to you via email and are expected to be settled through payment to Hunt, Deltel & Co. ltd or settled directly into our bank accounts.
Currency: SCR (Seychelles Rupee)
Containers taken outside the port area are subject to a deposit of:
SCR 20, 000 / TEU / Dry
SCR 40, 000 / TEU / Reefer
For import containers, demurrage and/or freetime is calculated as from discharge date of containers in Victoria. While for export containers, same is calculated as from pick up date from port area.
As per clauses 15.4 of Maersk Bill of Lading, if containers supplied by or on behalf of the Carrier are unpacked at the Merchant's premises, the Merchant is responsible for returning the empty containers with interior clean, odour free and in the same condition as received, to the point of place designated by the Carrier, within the time prescribed. Should a Container not be returned in the condition required and/or within the time prescribed in the Tariff, the Merchant shall be liable for any detention, loss or expense incurred as a result thereof.
Moreover, as per clause 15.5, containers released into the care of the Merchant for packing, unpacking or any other purpose whatsoever are the sole risk of the Merchant until redelivered to the Carrier. The Merchant shall indemnify the Carrier for all loss of and/or damage and/or delay to such Containers. Merchants are deemed to be aware of the dimensions and capacity of any Containers released to them.
Containers must be returned within the prescribed period unless prior arrangements are made and agreed with Maersk.
