Collection of freight receivables is not as expensive as you would expect. The good news in advance: In case of success you will not incur any costs. Otherwise, you pay for a simple out-of-court collection procedure from 70.20 € net.
- If the debtor is therefore liquid, the collection costs must be borne by the debtor. Costs for a collection letter therefore only arise if the receivable cannot be collected.
- The costs for a collection letter depend on the amount of the outstanding debt.
In the event of a freight or demurrage charge of e.g. 1,000 euros, the costs shall be calculated as follows:
Reimbursable collection costs
lump-sum expense allowance
Payment by debtor
Costs incurred by your company
If the freight claim is not paid, the costs of the judicial dunning procedure may increase even further. You can also cancel the collection process at any time if you do not want to spend any more money.
