Average in-terminal turn time:
44.2 minutes day shift
46.2 minutes night shift

For comparison, the average in-terminal turn time in May 2014 was 41.7 minutes for the day shift and 43.7 minutes for the night shift.

In-terminal turn time is the average amount of time a truck is inside a terminal to complete a transaction. Truck activity information is derived from RFID data, and excludes lunch hour, breaks and trouble tickets. Turn time at individual terminals will vary depending on time of day and other factors.

Frequent callers* average moves per day:
11% trucks 5 or moves per day
18% trucks 4 moves per day
30% trucks 3 moves per day
25% trucks 2 moves per day
16% trucks 1 move per day

*The ports define frequent callers as trucks making one or more moves per weekday. Average moves per day by frequent callers tells us how many moves a truck can make if it is working every day. In June, 29 percent of frequent callers made four or more moves per day.

Day vs. Night Gates:
Average daily number of day gate moves: 16,061
Average daily number of night gate moves: 16,253
