North America Demurrage Tariff Changes

Import Demurrage Charge at Canada & U.S. Rail Ramps (CY Delivery Only)

Dear Valued Customer,

On August 16, 2021, we shared a customer advisory about implementation of import demurrage at rail ramps. There has been some confusion regarding this announcement and we would like to clarify.

The intent was to adjust the number of free days and the charge per day after free time has expired. However, we have decided to not move forward with this change and will continue to charge import demurrage at rail ramps as we have been. Free time is, and will remain, 4 working days for Dry equipment and 2 working days for Reefer and Special equipment. Below are the daily rates to be charged after free time has expired.

Days Dry Equipment
Day 1-4 $215 Per Day
Day 5-9 $265 Per Day
Day 10+ $315 Per Day

Days Dry Equipment
Day 1-3 $340 Per Day
Day 4-7 $440 Per Day
Day 8+ $490 Per Day

Days Dry Equipment
Day 1-3 $400 Per Day
Day 4-7 $500 Per Day
Day 8+ $550 Per Day

We sincerely apologize for any confusion this may have caused. If you require more information, please contact your Hamburg Süd representative with any questions you may have.

With kind regards,

Hamburg Süd
