Demurrage: What is it?

Demurrage charges are applied for storage of laden containers whilst in OOCL’s care in a port, rail terminal, feeder terminal, inland depot or container yard. Demurrage is applied after a designated free time.

Detention: What is it?

Detention charges are applied for the storage or holding of containers whilst in our customers’ care outside a port, rail terminal, feeder terminal, inland depot or container yard. Detention is applied after a designated free time.

There are 2 types of Detention:-

Merchant Haulage: when customers do their own trucking and have to return the container back to OOCL’s care within the free period.

Carrier Haulage (Drop & Collect): container is left at the customer’s own premises whilst they load or devan it. OOCL's vehicle returns a different day to pull it out.
