Detention, demurrage, Per Diem and storage charges
What are storage charges? 
A storage charge is applicable, after the free time expires, for containers left inside the container terminal  (for the use of the land). 

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

What is detention? 
Detention is the charge applicable, after the free time expires, for the use of the carrier’s container (full or empty) outside the marine terminal. For import, the timeframe is from the date the full container is picked up from the terminal until it is returned empty, whereas for export, the timeframe is between the date the empty container is picked up from the terminal until it is returned full, customs cleared and ready to be shipped.

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, all marine terminals in the USA are now allowed to use their certified scales to record Verified Gross Mass (VGM) of shipments.

 

What do I need to include in my VGM instructions?

You must include the following on all VGM instructions: 

  • Booking or Bill of Lading (BL) number 

  • Container number 

  • VGM + weight measurement unit (lbs. or kgs.) 

  • Responsible Party Name 

  • Digital signature of the authorised signatory in all CAPITAL LETTERS.

   

How can I submit my VGM instructions?

  

Guidelines for submitting your VGM instructions

  • The Verified Gross Mass (VGM) must be sent within the cut offs, immediately after stuffing

  • If you cannot determine the VGM, we can provide this service at the container terminal in Constanta, but the request must be placed at the time of the booking.

  • The weighting can be done exceptionally after container is gated in, but there will be additional costs involved.

  • There is currently no “NO VGM – No GATE” policy. 

 

MSC admin fees and costs 

  • Manual VGM Submission Fee (applies to email, fax, and inclusion on standard shipping instructions): 5 USD per container. 

  • Late VGM Submission Fee: 10 USD per container. 

  • VGM Misdeclaration Fee: 70 USD per misdeclaration + weighting costs, per container.
