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."
