WBCT are therefore currently updating our internal systems to reflect additional information and disclosures which are to be included with our invoices and receipts. However, to ensure the continuing flow of cargo and its prompt release while these changes are being implemented, the following information, terms, and conditions hereby apply effective immediately:
- WBCT acts only as an agent for the Carrier, and relies upon the representations for accuracy and completeness of information supplied by the Carrier with respect to contents of each invoice.
- Any certification with respect to a Carrier’s compliance with OSRA 2022 or other applicable laws or regulations contained on WBCT invoice is made solely based on WBCT’s reliance on representations of the information provided to WBCT by the Carrier.
- WBCT may continue to issue demurrage and detention invoices in accordance with its existing practice on an interim basis, and will amend and/or reissue invoices as soon as technically practical to the extent additional information is required to be provided pursuant to OSRA 2022 or other changes in law or regulations.
- Until new invoices are available and/or amended, the following additional information is hereby incorporated into each invoice governed by the OSRA 2022 for demurrage and detention as though fully set forth in and printed for both online and hard copy invoices and receipts:
- Allowed Free Time is four (4) days
- The applicable detention or demurrage rule on which the daily rate is based can be found Port of Los Angeles Tariff No. 4 (https://www.portoflosangeles.org/business/tariff)

- Based on representations of the Carrier, information, and belief, the charges are consistent with any Federal Maritime Commission rules with respect to detention and demurrage.
- Based on representations of the Carrier, information, and belief, the Carrier’s performance did not cause or contribute to the underlying invoiced charges.
- As to Paragraphs 4(d) and (e) above, WBCT has requested, and expects, but has not yet received, confirmation and consent from all Carriers concerning OSRA 2022 Carrier statements and certifications, including as described in Sections 7(d)(2)(L) and (M), and therefore any such statement or certification contained in (or, pursuant to paragraph 4, above. incorporated by reference into) an invoice or receipt from WBCT is limited to the representations, information, and belief of WBCT.
