Demurrage & Detention Collection
Common practice, shipping lines through their agencies collect demurrage & Detention charge from consignee when returning empty container over limit from given freetime period. Usually consignee should deposit money first when processing DO Import document.
Some cases, demurrage & detention charges higher than deposit value, and consignee must settle this deficit. Unfortunately shipping lines face difficulty to collect those charges, because consignees has already returned empty container to container depot and they are not regular importer.
Smart solution for that situation is demurrage & detention collection delivered to container depots and require them to remit those charges to shipping lines with full amount. Other benefits are no employee and room office costs.
We are ready to help by providing a proper system that can integrate data from shipping lines and container depots.
