FMC categorizes detention and demurrage complaints
Speaking during the National Customs Brokers and Forwarders Association of America (NCBFAA) Annual Conference, Dye said customer service complaints around detention and demurrage generally relate to reportedly poor communication regarding container holds. Respondents have complained about demurrage and detention fees occurring sometimes when Customs and Border Protection pulls containers for inspection, an FMC spokesperson said. Upon conclusion of the FMC’s detention and demurrage investigation, which Dye is leading, Dye said she will not recommend a legislative rule, a form of FMC regulation that carries the weight of penalties associated with determinations of Shipping Act violations.
