Detention – Vehicles Without Power Units
This item applies when DUBL’s vehicles without power units are delayed or detained on the premises of Consignor, Consignee or on other premises designated by them. Such spotted vehicles will be allowed 24 consecutive hours of free time for loading or unloading. Computation of time begins when the trailer is spotted at the site specifically designated by the Consignor or Consignee and ends when DUBL is notified that the vehicle is ready for pickup.
When any portion of the 24-hour free time extends into a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, the computation of time for such portion shall resume at 12:01 am on the next day that is neither a Saturday, Sunday or holiday. Free time shall not begin on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, but at 8:00 am on the next day which is neither a Saturday, Sunday or holiday.
The detention charge per vehicle assessed after the expiration of free time as follows:
- $40.00 - For each of the 1st and 2nd 24 hour period or fraction thereof (Saturdays, Sundays and holidays excluded)
- $45.00 - For each of the 3rd and 4th 24 hour periods or faction thereof (Saturdays, Sundays and holidays excluded)
- $50.00 - For the 5th and each succeeding 24 hour period or fraction thereof (Saturdays, Sundays and holidays excluded)
When a vehicle is both unloaded and reloaded, each transaction will be treated independently of the other
