The Canadian International Freight Forwards Association (CIFFA) has submitted a letter to the Minister of Transport in support of FIATA’s submission to the US Federal Maritime Commission’s (FMC) review of container detention and demurrage charges dated November 7, 2019.  FIATA supports a more transparent, equitable and business orientated process in the determination and levy of such charges not only in the US but in other economies where industry operates under similar processes. In its letter, CIFFA questions how the determination of detention and demurrage facilitates the orderly movement of containers and offers to help facilitate the development of a transparent and collaborative set of service standards to avoid delays and costs in Canadian ports.
