Customer Advisory: Emergency Fee at the ports of LA and Long Beach

Terminal congestion at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have reached historical levels

The Biden Administration has announced that effective November 1st, 2021, the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will begin charging an “emergency fee” on all long-dwelling cargo.

Both ports will begin charging Ocean Carriers an additional fee for import containers that have sat idle on the terminal for 9 days local delivery, and 6 days for rail cargo departing the port for inland location.

The cost is $100 per container on the first day past the set dwelling limit for terminal or rail and will increase by $100 increments for each day that follows (i.e., $200 for day 2, $300 for day 3, and so on).

As directed, the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will be responsible for collecting the fees. The revenue will be reinvested in long-term port efficiency and infrastructure programs that will help mitigate any future congestion challenges in the San Pedro Bay area.  Read JOC article
