Customer Advisory - North America Demurrage Tariff Changes

Implementation of an Import Demurrage Charge at Canada & U.S. Rail Ramps for Equipment Use (CY Delivery Only)

Dear Valued Customer,

Effective September 15, 2021 (based on rate applicability date), Hamburg Süd will begin charging line demurrage at ramps for equipment use if a container dwells on terminal longer than freetime. This will apply to containers moving on a CY basis to all rail ramps. Freetime is 4 working days at CSX rail ramps and 3 working days at all other rail ramps. After freetime expires the below import demurrage charges will apply for equipment use (customers will continue to work directly with the ramps for any storage charges due):

Days Dry Equipment
Day 1-4 $150 per Day
Day 5-8 $210 per Day
Day 9+ $240 per Day

Days Refrigerated Equipment
Day 1-3 $310 per Day
Day 4+ $435 per Day

Days Special Equipment (Open Top Flat Rack)
Day 1-3 $310 per Day
Day 4+ $415 per Day

If you require more information, please contact your local sales manager or any of our customer service advisors.

With kind regards,

Hamburg Süd
