Monitor 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 tracks 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.
