Detention, demurrage, Per Diem and storage charges

What is detention?
Detention is the charge to use the carrier’s full container, inside the marine terminal, railroad facilities or container yard, after the expiry of the free time. This charge can also apply while the container is undergoing inspection by customs, or while the cargo inside the container is being reworked for safety reasons.   
 
What are storage charges?
Storage charges are billed directly to customers by APM Terminals after free days period.

SOLAS VGM information

What is VGM?
Verified gross mass or VGM refers to the exact, verified weight of a packed container. For safety reasons, vessel operators can only load a container if its weight has been verified.

The following are included on all VGM instructions: 

  •  Booking or Bill of Lading (BL) number 
  • Container number 
  • VGM and weight measurement unit (lbs or kgs) 
  • Name of responsible party
  • Digital signature of the authorised signatory in CAPITAL LETTERS.

Exporters can sign MyMSC to upload the VGM.

VGM should be provided 24 hours prior vessel arrival to avoid late fees of USD25.00.

Pesage de conteneurs (VGM)

Tous les bureaux locaux de MSC fournissent des balances certifiées pour enregistrer et vérifier le poids du conteneur (masse brute vérifiée ou VGM) conformément à la réglementation SOLAS (Safety of Lives at Sea). Les instructions VGM sont obligatoires pour toutes les expéditions pour des raisons de sécurité et les exploitants de navires ne peuvent charger un conteneur que si son poids a été vérifié de manière appropriée.
