As a friendly reminder, next week the adjustment to the Traffic Mitigation Fee (TMF) at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will go into effect. Effective August 1, the current Traffic Mitigation Fee at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will increase to $60 per TEU / $120 per FEU for containers moving Monday – Friday, 3 a.m. – 6 p.m. The fee increase will help to offset the increased cost to operate PierPass OffPeak gates.
The PierPass OffPeak program provides tremendous value and future growth potential to the goods movement industry, greatly increasing the capacity of America’s largest port complex without adding additional infrastructure. OffPeak gates help to minimize daytime traffic congestion, allow cargo to move faster at night on less crowded roads, and enables truck owners to deliver more loads through lower turn-times and twice the number of working hours in a day. The TMF funds the nighttime gates, which make these benefits possible.
If you have questions about the TMF increase, please call our customer service center at 1-877-863-3310.
