Demurrage Waiver

Hurricane Maria affected the supply chains for many companies in Puerto Rico. We understand, as we all focused first on the safety of our employees and colleagues after the storm the ability to take possession of goods was slow. Thankfully today, we see many facility operations are being restored and businesses are beginningto return to work and coordinate operations for receipt and distribution of cargo. We are working hand in hand with many Puerto Rico businesses to help restore their supply chain, coordinate relief goods for their employees, transport generators to restore access to power and provide innovative solutions to divert cargo for facilities that remain flooded or in operable. During these times, it is important we focus on the efforts of rebuilding and working together for solutions. We also want to help make the process of rebuilding as seamless for our customers as possible.

With this in mind, Trailer Bridge will not assess demurrage charges for any cargo on terminal after Hurricane Maria from Wednesday, Sept 20 through Saturday September 30.
