FMC TO INVESTIGATE DEMURRAGE PRACTICES


The Federal Maritime Commission on April 2 announced it has begun investigating terminal operators and ocean carrier’s practices for demurrage at ports, including detention and free time. The FMC has ordered terminals and carriers to provide documents and additional information outlining practices and charges.  A key focus is the practices where circumstances prevent a shipper from getting cargo from facilities. The FMC is also reaching out to shippers, trucking companies that handle drayage, brokers and other parties who have had extraordinary or bad experiences with demurrage, detention or excessive or unreasonable charges.  


The investigation is focused on the movement of cargo and process efficiency, billing practices, demurrage and detention invoicing, fees associated with delays based on actions beyond the control of cargo interests and policies related to how disputes are resolved.  The actions are the result of fees and charges made for cargo delays due to circumstances such as weather, port congestion, labor actions and similar interruptions.
