In response to the Ocean Shipping Reform Act, Hapag Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM), and Yang Ming requested that TraPac stop collecting their ocean carrier demurrage effective Friday, 06/24/2022. As a result of this, two important changes occurred to TraPac.com.
- Last Free Day
- For LAX, the LFD for Hapag, HMM, and Yang Ming containers is no longer visible
- For OAK, the LFD was set to a dummy date of 12/31/2022. In both cases, please confirm your LFD with your ocean carrier
- Demurrage Payments – payments for demurrage will no longer be collected by TraPac. Please discuss with your ocean carrier their new demurrage payment methods
- For both LAX and Oakland, the demurrage amount will show $0
As this is all rapidly developing, changes could occur quickly, but we expect a container that owes demurrage to one of these two lines, the ocean carrier will send TraPac a hold via EDI. If a SSL hold is present, or you have questions about the last free day or demurrage charges and payments, please contact your steamship line.
TraPac is committed to doing our best to keep you and your customers in the loop of important changes. Thanks for your patience and understanding
