Demurrage & Detention

Dear Customer,

In an effort to offer our customers an overall transparent, consistent and easy shipping experience, Safmarine will be redefining our global compensation basics of Demurrage, Detention and Storage witheffect from 1 January 2017.

We will be introducing the following changes to our Malaysia surcharge structure and calculation methods in order to align with the new global practices. We have taken steps to minimize any customer felt impact and wish to emphasize that the new structure does not represent any significant change to the way you currently do business with Safmarine in Malaysia.

Definition:

Demurrage means compensation incurred by customer for utilising equipment beyond the given free time inside the terminal.
Detention means compensation incurred by customer for utilising equipment beyond the given freetime outside the terminal.

 

 

Separation of Storage

 We will separate Storage from Demurrage. This allows a clear distinction of the compensation applied for utilising the port, terminal or depot facilities (Storage), and the compensation incurred for utilisation of equipment beyond the agreed free time days inside terminals or depots (Demurrage).

Storage means compensation for utilising the port, terminal or depot or inland container yard facilities. For Malaysia export and import shipments, the compensation for Storage related to use of Terminal or Depot facilities will continue to be settled directly by customers to terminal.

Export tariff charges effective 1 January 2017

Moving forward our setup in Malaysia will be Combined Demurrage & Detention. 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.

The Demurrage Export will be calculated based on the actual “Load” date of the container, there will be a change from vessel ETA today to Load where Safmarine considered to increase additional 1 day export free day from 2016 tariff.
