Check your LFD (Last Free Day): Free Time Rules Vary by Port Terminal and Shipping Line

If you have imports coming in on Hapag-Lloyd, it’s vital to check their free time rules and not rely on the port terminal website. 

The LFD (Last Free Day) granted by the ocean carrier may not be the same as the port terminal and this can lead to additional storage charges in demurrage and detention.  

Free time policies can be found on carrier websites, you can view Hapag Lloyd’s ​Last Free Day Rules here 

If you have questions about the Last Free Day and demurrage or detention policies on upcoming shipments, please reach out your Hillebrand representative for more information.
