freetime_demmurge_italy

Export Detention Charges are applied when a container does not gate in full in terminal within freetime period (which starts from the gate out of empty unit for stuffing purpose until the gate in full in terminal) while

Export Demurrage Charges are applied when a container is not loaded on vessel within freetime period (which starts from the gate in full in terminal until loading date included)

IMPORT:

As from 15th July (Discharge Date) Seago Line reviews the freetime application logic and introduces a new way to calculate Demurrage and Detention for Import Shipments

  • Demurrage will cover the port storages at the terminal and will be calculated from discharge date up to gate out full from the port
  • Detention will be calculated from discharge date up to gate in date of the empty included

Requests of standard freetime extension can be evaluated for a certain trade and for a specific period directly with sales department.

In order to check standard freetime and charges, please select your scope: import/export
