This week, IAM joined nearly a dozen other shipper-based companies, and provided testimony to the Federal Maritime Commission in support of the Detention and Demurrage Petition, currently under consideration. IAM's involvement with the petition filers, The Coalition for Fair Port Practices (CFPP), goes back nearly two years, when informal discussions began among shippers and other impacted by detention and demurrage fees. The Commission asked that a petition be submitted so they could formally consider detention and demurrage practices.
