Understanding Storage Fees and Demurrage Fees

What are Storage Fees?

Storage fees are charges associated with keeping a package at a facility, such as a warehouse or CES.

What Factors Result in Storage Fees?

Several factors may result in storage fees, including:

  • Customs inspection delays
  • Extended carrier collection delays for shipments to Amazon FBA
  • Shipment pre-pulling and storage in the trucker's yard
  • Choosing to store a shipment instead of shipping it to Amazon FBA

How Do Demurrage Fees Differ from Storage Fees?

Demurrage fees are different and are charged by terminals to discourage keeping containers at the port for an extended period. They are separate from storage fees, which cover the actual cost of storing shipments.
