Coalition: Detention & Demurrage


Our associations (TOYSA, IHSA, NCBFAASA) have joined a coalition with various entities representing importers, exporters, and their supply-chain partners. The goal of the coalition is to request suspension of detention and demurrage at San Pedro Bay (Los Angeles & Long Beach) and New York/New Jersey ports.
