Depot, Demurrage & Detention

Demurrage = charges paid for leaving the container in our possession for longer than the free time we offer (i.e. container has not gated out).

Detention = charges paid for the customer keeping the container in their possession for longer than the free time offered (i.e. container gated out and not returned).

Storage = charges paid to the terminal operator (COMAN) for leaving a container on their site for longer than the free time they offer.
