Port of LA, Long Beach delays container charges once again

Port of LA, Long Beach delays container charges once again

The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach announced on Monday, December 6, that they would for the fourth time delay tariffs on companies whose containers are stuck at maritime terminals.

Fees won’t start until at least December 13.

The fee, which was announced on October 25, has been delayed several times as port officials say progress has been made in reducing the number of port containers at the terminal. Ports reported a 37% drop in aging cargo at docks since the tariffs were announced on Monday. Over the next week, port officials will monitor and reevaluate the implementation of the duty.

“There has been a significant improvement in clearing import containers from our docks in recent weeks,” Jean Cerocca, executive director of the Port of Los Angeles, said on November 15. Fees were delayed again on November 22 and November 29.

“I am grateful to the many nodes of the supply chain from shipping lines, marine terminals, trucks and cargo owners,” Serocca said, “for their increased collaborative efforts.”

The fee is one of several efforts to speed up the processing of cargo at the San Pedro Port Complex and eliminate the backlog of ships trying to deliver the goods. Port of Los Angeles officials said when the policy was announced that about 40% of import containers were idle at terminals for at least nine days.
