Monitor, manage, and mitigate D&D

Detention and demurrage (D&D) costs can exceed $10M annually for global shippers, and a lack of reliable data makes tackling the problem nearly impossible. Detention & Demurrage Optimization from project44 delivers timely information on shipments so you can optimize container movement based on real cost impact and save millions in fees annually. 

Slash accessorial fees

Identify containers incurring or at risk of incurring D&D charges and coordinate container pickups to minimize demurrage costs. 

Dispatch right on time

Container availability and underlying hold status information ensures that drayage is dispatched to the right location at the right time. Historical data enables you to audit confirmed pick-up and gate messages to refute any inappropriate charges.

Improve operational efficiency 

Historical data enables you to identify high-demurrage terminals and carriers and understand underlying reasons for incidents so you can develop supply chain-wide solutions.
