Ports — FASA Urges U.S. Government to Take Action Against Unfair Demurrage Fees

FASA joined 94 other industry associations sending a June 10 letter urging the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) to take action on unfair and unwarranted demurrage, detention, and per diem charges paid by shippers when port delays prevent timely pickup and drop off of containers and equipment. The FMC released a report in April 2015 examining the issue.
