Monitor and Pay Demurrage

Demurrage is a charge assessed by railroads for the extended use of rail cars by shippers or receivers of freight beyond a specified free time. Demurrage ensures that cars are loaded or unloaded quickly so that they can be made available for the next shipment and that track can remain fluid to handle traffic.

  • Manage demurrage accumulation with the ShipCSX Demurrage Charges tool. Demurrage information can be analyzed by location, account or by specific rail cars.
  • See the Guide to Managing Demurrage.
  • For help with a demurrage bill, call 1-877-ShipCSX (1-877-744-7279), options 5 - 4 - 2.
 
Report Damaged Freight
  • Use the ShipCSX Freight Claims tool to submit loss or damage reports and freight claims.
  • To submit a report by telephone: 1-877-ShipCSX (1-877-744-7279), options 5 - 5 - 1
  • To inquire about the status of a freight claim, use the "Status" button in the ShipCSX Freight Claims tool, or call 1-877-ShipCSX (1-877-744-7279), options 5 - 5 - 2.
