Insurance covers the penalty for delays in the return of the container.

The demurrage occurs when the container exceeds the free days it has to return the unit to the warehouse, as established in the terms and conditions in the contract with the carrier.

The Demurrage, or Dock Delay, is what occurs within the port, unlike the Detention, which is when the allotted free days have expired since the container leaves the terminal or port. Within the context of transport and logistics process insurance, "it is the delay, the temporary detention, or impossibility of continuing the journey of the insured objects, the impact of which is a financial loss suffered by the insured"

Our demurrage insurance covers the detention that occurs in the delivery of the containers to the carrier's warehouse, due to fortuitous causes, where the negligence of the insured is not evident and/or it is caused by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, lightning , tsunami, hurricane, typhoon, tropical depressions, or other natural hazards.
