The new rules governing the billing of demurrage and detention invoices went into effect on May 28th. Regardless of the Ocean Carrier Equipment Management Association’s (OCEMA) petition for a delay and the World Shipping Council’s (WSC) legal challenge, the rule is in effect and ocean carriers are required to invoice the shipper, consignee or contract holder for demurrage and detention charges.

OCEMA has also been issued a cease and desist order on “box rules” enabling motor carriers to use their chassis of choice.
