Container Cleaning Fee

The business of global trade in containers covers many commodities.

Some of these commodities may cause the containers to be dirty, messy, stained, have fumigation residue, etc.

A shipping line is expected and required to provide a suitable, clean, sound condition container to the customer for exports. If the container is dirty, unclean, stained, etc., it cannot be used for exports.

Therefore, the line may be required to clean the empty inbound container and make it cargo worthy for export bookings.

This cleaning process may require actions such as water wash or chemical wash, which creates additional cost for the shipping line, and this extra cost, the shipping line will recover from the consignee in the form of a Container Cleaning Fee
