Depot, Demurrage & Detention

Port demurrage : A free-time of 5 days is allowed to clear out the cargo by consignee(s) from Port premises. Thereafter, demurrage is applicable at the rate of SAR 20/day/gross tonne (including container tare weight), which is charged and collected by the port authorities directly from consignee(s), without any influence and/or involvement of shipping lines/agents.
