Weekly Operational Update - July 6th – July 13th, 2020

(Morristown, NJ)…We would like to provide the most recent information on our vessel, terminal and inland operations within North America. This information is subject to change.

Equipment Demurrage and Equipment Detention:

In an effort to provide flexibility and transparency on managing Equipment Demurrage and Equipment Detention during COVID-19, Hamburg Süd will follow the below guidelines:

  • Any day a terminal is closed, Hamburg Süd will not count that day as a working day within the customer’s free time period for equipment demurrage or equipment detention.
  • If a terminal is restricting empty returns, Hamburg Süd will not count that day as a working day within the free time period for import equipment detention.
  • For export detention, if the earliest receipt date changes for a shipment (while the container is in the customer’s possession for stuffing), Hamburg Süd will extend the customer’s detention free time through the new earliest receipt date for the shipment.
  • In all cases of the above, when free time expires – Hamburg Süd will bill equipment demurrage and equipment detention per normal procedure.
  • Any 3rd party expenses (chassis, storage depots, etc.) due to changes of terminal or vessel schedules will not be covered by Hamburg Süd.
