Detention, demurrage, Per Diem and storage charges

Detention, demurrage, Per Diem and storage in Spain

What is detention?

Detention is the charge applicable, after the free time expires, for the use of the carrier’s full container inside the marine terminal, railroad facilities or container yard. This charge can also apply while the container is undergoing Spain customs inspections, or while the cargo inside the container is being reworked for safety reasons.  

What is demurrage?

Demurrage is the charge applicable, after the free time expires, inside the terminal for the use of the land.

What is Per Diem?

Per Diem is the charge applicable, after the free time expires, for the use of the carrier’s container (full or empty) outside the marine terminal, rail ramp or container yard. 

What are storage charges?

A storage charge is applicable, after the free time expires, for containers left inside the rail ramp or container yard (for the use of the land).

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.

In line with SOLAS (Safety of Lives at Sea) regulations, since 1 July 2016, Shippers are obliged to obtain and submit in a timely manner the VGM of each shipment to the carrier. Weighing at terminal through MSC has proven to be the most agile and secure formula to comply with this law’s requirements, a service we have put at our customers’ disposal to avoid shipment rejections and/or penalties due to the lack and/or discrepancy of the VGM.

How can I submit my VGMs?
