Per Diem Fee

A per diem fee, sometimes also known as detention, is applicable for each additional day that a container remains out from port beyond the allotted “free” days. The fee is imposed by the carriers to discourage the importers from keeping their containers in storage for extended periods of time so that they may recover and reuse the containers soon.
