Detention Requirements

It is imperative the detention procedures are followed in order to ensure proper payment for detention incurred while working a Werner Logistics load. If we do not have proper notification of detention, we may not be able to get notification to and approval from our customer, which means we may not be able to guarantee your payment.

Any deviation in the below policy can result in a non-payment of detention charges.

  1. Carrier is to notify Werner Logistics detention contact 60 minutes prior to the free time expiration period so Werner Logistics can notify the customer of a potential detention situation.
  2. Carrier must provide the following information:
    • tour #
    • scheduled appointment time
    • driver arrival time
  3. After detention has occurred, carrier must also provide:
    • driver unload time
    • number of hours of detention
    • detention charges

Note: Werner Logistics Guidelines: minimum two hours free time dependent upon the account for whom you are hauling. Werner Logistics deals with many shippers and all do not have the same requirements.

If detention situation occurs after hours, on a weekend or holiday, you must notify the detention contact no later than the next business day.


  1. Tour Confirmation Form: the responsible booking project/broker contact will re-issue the corrected tour confirmation form with the applicable detention dollars and send to the carrier of record.
    • a properly executed tour confirmation form is mandatory for the carrier to be paid. If you do not receive a corrected tour confirmation form from the booking project/broker contact showing detention charges, call them and ensure you receive one. It is your guarantee of payment for the detention.
  2. Bill of Lading: the customer must sign BOLs and have the in/out times noted.
