Yard storage is charged by the trucker if a container is stored at the trucker's yard, instead of a terminal.
What is yard storage?
Yard storage is the storage of containers in a trucker’s gated yard. If a container cannot be delivered to its destination before the Last Free Day, the container may be stored at the trucker’s yard to avoid costly demurrage charges. Truckers charge a daily fee for yard storage.
A pre-pull will usually include a free night’s storage at the trucker’s yard before beginning to incur yard storage fees.
