Depot, Demurrage & Detention

Dear Customers,

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. 

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 Indonesia 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.


 ***From 15.08.2020 the Free Time deals will be applied based on the effective deals at the Price Calculation date – PCD***

Tariff charges effective 1 April 2017

Export : Our setup in Indonesia will be Demurrage and Detention. 

This means you will have separate free time and compensation for utilisation of equipment inside (Demurrage) and outside (Detention) of terminals or depots while storage is not applicable and still be collected by terminal directly. 
The Demurrage Export will be calculated based on the actual “Load” date of the container.
