Demurrage and Detention Conditions

As market conditions continue to remain challenging due to pandemic-related carrier capacity volatility, increased freight volumes, congestion at ocean terminals, and rail service as well as trucking capacity shortages, the industry is experiencing unprecedented higher transportation costs with impacts to every aspect of the business.

As a result of these challenges and increased delays, we see severe equipment imbalances in all markets globally. In order to improve equipment flow, the carriers are introducing aggressive measures and policies to reduce allotted free time for container demurrage and detention; in addition, we see announcements by Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Seattle port terminals introducing their own congestion fees, some of which for now have been delayed.

In efforts to minimize the impact to you, DB Schenker will introduce changes to our existing terms and conditions for Demurrage and Detention to mitigate the adverse effects, effective January 1st, 2022.
