Please see below a customer advisory from Maersk on Storage Free Time and Equipment Free Time.

Dear Customer,

From 1st January 2019 we will be calculating both Storage Free Time and Equipment Free Time from day of discharge.

Storage will commence on and include the day that the full container is discharged at the port and will end on the day that the container is gated-out from the last terminal/ port for delivery.

Equipment Demurrage and Detention will commence on and include the day that the full container is discharged at the port and will end on the day that the empty container is gated-in at the terminal/ port.

In association with these changes, the current ‘Storage and Demurrage’ invoice title and charge description will be changed to read ‘Storage’ with effect from 16.00 GMT on 12th January 2019.

Existing client agreements with a validity beyond 1st January 2019 will remain unchanged until their expiry date.
