Buy more time for your cargo

When you're pressed for time and your cargo’s onward journey is uncertain, a standard Freetime window can be insufficient, leading to high demurrage charges. To avoid high D&D charges and additional administrative hassle for your business you can add extra detention Freetime to your shipment at time of booking.

With Spot Freetime Extension, you have the option to choose from multiple Freetime slots. Along with more choices, you get a completely transparent experience as the additional slots come with upfront fixed prices.

Additionally, you can extend Freetime when your cargo is still on-water before vessel arrival at port. You can easily add Freetime extension to an existing booking through Learn more about Freetime Extension and how to add it to your booking here.

  • More choices: Choose to extend Freetime up to 14 days additional detention Freetime.
  • Transparent: Get a complete overview of costs with a fixed price upfront.
  • Cost-effective: Save up to 80% when you buy additional Freetime upfront at time of booking. When purchasing additional Freetime when cargo is on water you can save up to 20% over tariff.
  • Easy to add: Extend Freetime in simple steps, right from the booking screen.
