Revision In Import Detention Charges Sri Lanka (w.e.f. 15th June, 2019)

16 May 2019

Maersk Line is committed in providing you with best-in-class services at all times. To remain cost effective and operationally simple we had changed our billing currency and slab structures in the past.

Staying in touch with the current market economics you would already be aware of the equipment shortage situation over the past several months. This has resulted in increased costs to serve your container provision needs, and consequently has lead us to revise our slab rates.

We will continue to assist you in turning around our containers within the free time, in order to avoid additional costs to you.

Details of the new charges are as follows:
