Container Detention Over the Holiday Period

Article By Newsletter on 18-12-2013

We have received the below notice from our transport company in relation to container detention over
the holiday period. If you have empty containers that need to be collected during this period please l
iaise with your local CFL office to avoid detention charges


“Well it’s that time of the year again…….Following a review of the anticipated demands over the
Christmas/New Year period we take this opportunity (as we have done in previous years) to
advise you of the terms that will apply to MT container collection and dehire over the upcoming
Christmas/New Year period.

Please note these terms will apply to all import container MT collections over the period 16th
December 2013 through to the 13th January 2014.

As you are aware our normal terms for dehire is that we will dehire containers within 2 working days from
the date of notification.  This will be extended to 4 working days over the peak period outlined above. 
In addition, any MT containers called in for collection on or during Tuesday the 24th December
(Christmas Eve) and Tuesday the 31st January will NOT be considered a working day for the purpose
of dehiring MT containers and any exposure to detention.

 Please note we will be operating over the Xmas/New year period (other than public holidays) and will
still make every effort to collect your containers and dehire them over this busy period. Please note
that on both Christmas and New Years Eve our office will be closing at 12 noon.”
