What is DnD, D&D or Demurrage and Detention?
Demurrage is the fee applicable when the customer holds carrier equipment in the terminal for longer than the agreed amount of free demurrage time. It can be incurred for both exports (early drop-off/ gate in) and imports (late pick-up).
Detention is the fee applicable to all containers that remain in the customer’s possession outside of the terminal longer than the agreed free detention time. Both of these fees highlight the importance of a swift and smooth supply chain.
Calculations of demurrage and detention costs are based on calendar days, and the amount is per day.
Non-operating reefers (NORs) are charged as DRY containers.
Reefer demurrage includes plug-in/electricity charges.
Shipper’s Own Containers (SOC) are not subject to detention.
Demurrage starts the same day as the container is discharged, or the next day if the container is discharged after 16.00hrs. It ends the same day as the container is gated out (full).
Detention starts the same day as the container is gated out (full). It ends the same day as the container is gated in (empty).
