Are you ready to navigate the new FMC ruling?

Effective May 26th of this year 2024, BCOs are now responsible for detention and demurrage fees, with the published final FMC rule on Detention and Demurrage.

But here's the kicker - they've got a 30-day window to dispute any charges. And, MTOs have a choice now. They can either release the cargo and bill later, or they can allow disputes even after the cargo is out. And that is where BlueCargo comes in as a necessary resource for all BCOs. We will audit your invoices and provide you with the data and documentation as a resource in case your invoice details don't match the contract.
