1st June 2023
Detention Tariff – French Polynesia
Swire Shipping has updated its detention tariff to reflect improvements in container availability and to support customer requirements in selected markets. These charges provide additional import and export free time to GP/HC equipment.
In order to ensure that Swire Shipping has containers available to meet your own and other customers’ requirements, we appreciate the prompt return of containers where circumstances allow.
FREE DAYS: are calculated on calendar days basis.
FOR IMPORTS: Free days will start from the day the container is discharged from the vessel. The calculation of days will stop when the container is returned to the relevant depot.
FOR EXPORTS: Free days will start when the container is picked up from the depot location and sent to the shipper. The calculation of days will stop when the container is received full at the terminal.
These changes will come into effect from 1st June 2023 in all locations. Please note that from 1st June 2023 the charge will apply to both new and existing shipments.
Should you have any questions or queries on these changes, please contact your local Swire Shipping representative.
