Ship Calculations

Our port agency experience, advanced IT capabilities, local knowledge and 24/7 service means that we have access to the latest information on all port costs and charges that vessel owners and charterers are likely to incur at ports throughout the UK.

Detailed vessel and cargo information enable us to provide customers with an accurate calculation of all port costs including any local restrictions (draft, tide, lock) prior to fixture of a vessel’s voyage.

This enables DAN Shipping customers to effectively predict and manage their costs without having to worry about hidden charges and unexpected additional costs.

In addition, we have detailed knowledge and experience of providing demurrage and laytime calculations and continue to provide this service to a number of our existing customers. Laytime is the time, determined by the charterer, allowed for loading and discharging cargo. The laytime is defined in the voyage charter and is critical since delays associated with the voyage are borne exclusively by the ship owner. If delays occur in the acts of loading or discharge, the charterer must pay the owner a fee, called "demurrage," for time lost in port. If loading and discharge are completed early, the ship owner pays the charterer a fee called "despatch."
