The ports of Los Angeles (POLA) and Long Beach have announced a delay in considering the container dwell fee until March 25, five months after it was announced.
The two ports have seen a combined decline of 62% in aging cargo since the dwell fee program was announced, POLA officials said in a press release. The ports' executive directors will reassess the fee's implementation after monitoring this week’s data, port officials said in a press release.
If the program is implemented, ocean carriers will be charged $100 for each import container dwelling nine or more days at the terminal. The charges would increase in $100 increments per container per day until removed from the terminal.
Any fees collected would be reinvested into programs to enhance efficiency, accelerate cargo movement and address port congestion, port officials said.
