I regularly drive over the QE bridge at Dartford and you can see the new London Gateway terminal cranes.They usually seem to be in the parked position too.I wonder what the trade figures say?

Nasty. Do you have insurance to cover the pending general average claim?

No they don't accept claims based on 'time'.

Importing (and I do as little as I have to) is not all its cracked up to be.

As a further example If customs pull your container for X ray they decide when it will be done, if this delay means the container clearance falls outside the 'free period', you pick up the Demmurage for the days the container has sat and have to pay the customs X ray fee to boot even if your container is 'clean'.

yup. its a pig and gets more expensive with more complicated cargoes!

i don't know if UASC have declared general average yet (i haven't been following this one) but have a look at the back of your bill of lading at the GA clause. if you have all risks marine cover you should be ok but its has the potential to be a bad situation if GA is declared. (look at the MSC vessel that had a major fire and then spend a few months bobbing around before it was berthed in Germany. )

hope it works out but no harm in checking. its times like this when the small print becomes really important!!
