Shipping Lines Detention Policies Christmas/New Year Period

Important Points to Note:

• Most shipping lines may consider some relief, if applied for and the case is genuine
• Importers closing down for holiday period is not considered as a genuine case

• After detention has occurred little to no consideration is likely to be given
