Demurrage Charges in Puerto Rico

Demurrage Charges in Puerto Rico (PDF, 61 KB)

Dear Customers,

The terminal of San Juan, PR is operating (with limited electricity) under significant restrictions. The situation remains stable for the moment, but unless stated directly by the terminal, Hamburg Süd intends to maintain its current schedule for vessels calling in and out of Puerto Rico. It is understood that access to the terminal may be limited due to debris on the roads and other unfavorable conditions resulting from the Hurricane.

Furthermore, due to the hurricane’s impact on all type of operations, Hamburg Süd will waive all demurrage fees incurred in Puerto Rico from September 13th, 2017 through October 13th, 2017. This exception applies only for containers which were not in demurrage status prior to September 13th, 2017.

Please contact your Hamburg Süd representative with any questions you may have.
