Maersk Spot Demurrage and Detention terms are agile and dynamic in order to respond quickly to changes in market conditions. These terms are fixed at the time of booking. We understand that you need to be aware of the terms applicable to your shipments when they arrive. The Maersk Spot platform includes full visibility of the Destination (Import) Demurrage and Detention terms, when you look up a price or book with us. This can be checked in three ways

  • At the time of rate search, the price owner can see the terms on the pricing page. The below snip is an illustration of how you may view the applicable terms.
