Free detention days provided for customers


We are often asked the question by importers how many free detention days is provided for the equipments, which are containers(20ft, 40ft).


The rule of thumb is generally 14 days with MSC along with other shipping lines such as the Chinese local COSCO.


However, the specific BL needs to be doubled checked to make sure the information is correct.

Shipping Lines and its combined free usage days, including but not limited to:

We always strive to provide the longest free use days for our customers to create customer value. This is done through systematic application lodged to the shipping line for 14 days and longer, who, on the other hand, ultimately makes decision whether to grant the extension to us.
