Pierpass Increases at Los Angeles and Long Beach Ports

According to Pierpass, "The West Coast MTO Agreement (WCMTOA) announced that the Traffic Mitigation Fee (TMF) at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will be temporarily adjusted from [postponed from December 1, 2021, through January 31, 2022 to January 10, 2022 to January 31, 2022], subject to regulatory clearance by the Federal Maritime Commission. During this period, there will be a financial incentive to move containers during off-peak hours by charging a TMF during peak hours. Today’s announcement makes no changes to the appointment systems operated by individual terminals."

This comes in "a collaborative effort to incentivize increased use of marine terminals gates during off-peak hours to expand use of warehouses, DCs, and trucking" during push for the holiday and Lunar New Year season.
