Demurrage / Detention / Free time
Combined Demurrage & Detention and Storage
Moving forward our setup in Italy will consist of two elements; Combined Demurrage & Detention and Storage.
This means you will have one combined free time period and compensation for utilisation of equipment inside and outside of terminals or depots, referred to as Combined Demurrage & Detention.
Compensation for storage related to use of terminal or depot facilities will be charged separately.
You will see these charges specified on your invoices during 2017. Combined Demurrage & Detention Export and Storage Export.

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)
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.
