     作为经营着该行业90%业务的22个集装箱运输公司的代表,世界航运理事会(WSC)在周二提交的一份文件中告知联邦海事委员会(FMC),其反对建立新的政策来停止码头运营商和海运承运人收取一些托运人和中介声称的不公平的滞留费和滞期费。

 

     12月7日,由25个成员组成的公平港口联盟(包括零售商,制造商,卡车司机,运输中介和其他人)向FMC提出请求,希望能制定法规以避免托运人因不可控事件(如暴风雨和罢工)而被收取费用。

 

       托运人和中介及其协会已提交几十封请愿信。

 

       例如,加利福尼亚汽车批发商协会主席和首席执行官Rodney K. Pierini写道:“托运人和卡车司机正过于频繁地因未及时收取和归还集装箱而被收取滞期费和滞留费,而这并不应由他们负责。”

Carriers express opposition to FMC on detention and demurrage petition

 

The World Shipping Council (WSC), the trade association that represents 22 container carriers operating about 90 percent of the industry's capacity, told the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) in a filing Tuesday that it opposes a request for the agency to establish a new policy that prevents terminal operators and ocean carriers from charging what some shippers and intermediaries claim are unfair detention and demurrage fees.

 

On Dec. 7, the 25-member Coalition for Fair Port Practices - which includes retailers, manufacturers, truckers, transportation intermediaries and others - petitioned the FMC to create rules to prevent shippers being charged fees when uncontrollable incidents, such as storms and strikes.

 

Dozens of letters, in support of the petition have been filed by shippers and intermediaries or their associations.

 

For example, California Automotive Wholesalers' Association President and CEO Rodney K. Pierini wrote, “All too frequently, shippers and truckers are being charged demurrage and detention for late pick-up or return of containers when it is not their fault."
