It is a VAS, applied when the carrier allows the pick-up of the empty container at a different location from the one stated on B/L as place of Receipt. It applies only to MH containers and only for export cargo. It can also be a penalty surcharge (in case the customer picked up the empty container at a different location without consulting the carrier first). It covers the unit empty positioning cost.
