Yesterday, officials with the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach provided additional information on the $100 container fee assessment, which they are implementing, in coordination and with direction from the White House Supply Chain Task Force. There have been several pieces of media on the proposed container fee over the past week.
The fee assessment (as proposed) would begin November 15th, for any container that has been dwelling on the dock for nine or more days that is destined for truck or six days if destined for rail. The fee includes both carrier and merchant haulage but does not include empty containers. The proposed fees would be assessed to the ocean carriers through a TBD mechanism.
Local containers (delivered through the gate) that exceed eight days dwell time on the terminal, will be assessed a Container Dwell Fee of $100 on day nine, with an additional $100 added each successive day.
- Day 9 (first day of charge)= $100
- Day 10 (second day of charge)= $200
- Day 11 (third day of charge) = $300 Example total charge = $600
Intermodal containers (on-dock rail) containers that exceed five days dwell time on the terminal before being loaded to a rail car, will be assessed a Container Dwell Fee of $100 on day six, with an additional $100 added each successive day.
- Day 6 (first day of charge)= $100
- Day 7 (second day of charge)= $200
- Day 8 (third day of charge) = $300 Example total of charge = $600
