CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM



Terminal Storage

The fee charged by destination terminals, once free time expires after a container has arrived. Free time varies between terminals across Canada. In some cases, it is as little as one day after arrival, after which a daily storage fee is charged (on average CA$200.00 – $300.00 per day). Certain terminals also charge a higher rate per day for reefer containers. Many terminals also increase the daily terminal storage fee for both standard and reefer containers after a set number of days. The charge ceases once the container is collected from the terminal.
