Demurrage

Effective Date: 01/04/2018

Expiry Date: Until further notice

Freetime and charges per container per calendar day (i.e. including week-ends and holidays) after freetime expires. Start date and end date are included in the calculation.

Notes:

  • Shipper’s Own Container is considered as equivalent to corresponding container type
  • 40´ High and 45´ High containers are considered equal to 40´
  • Special equipment/cargo, such as Flat Racks and Open Top equipment, is considered equal to reefer freetime and tariff
  • Shipper’s owned tank with DRY cargo follows freetime & rate of Dry equipment
  • Shipper’s owned tank with IMO cargo follows freetime & rate of IMO
  • For special deals: Please bear in mind that the calculation method of charges for special deals (free-time granted > tariff free-time) is ‘progressive’ and the leadoff rate slap(s) will be reduced by the number of days in excess of tariff free-time.
  • NOR (non-operating reefer) is considered as Dry Container
  • D&D product is split demurrage & detention, where demurrage is an all-inclusive rate (storage, plug-in, equipment rent on quay)
