PierPass Monthly Transaction Data
Each month we provide a summary of the latest transaction data from marine terminal operators (MTOs) at the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach. Below please find data from the month of February 2016.

Average in-terminal turn time:
46.3 minutes day shift
48.6 minutes night shift

For comparison, the average in-terminal turn time in January 2016 was 45.5 minutes for the day shift and 49.0 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. For more information about turn times and how we measure them, please see our Q&A at http://goo.gl/PiOjBp.

Average daily moves per truck in February:
5 or more moves per day: 3%
4 moves per day: 9%
3 moves per day: 24%

1 move per day: 24%

Gate moves during Peak and OffPeak shifts in February:
Total Peak gate moves: 356,408 (57%)

A gate move occurs when a container enters or leaves a marine terminal via the truck gates. Peak shifts are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. OffPeak shifts are all other times and are considered exempt from the Traffic Mitigation Fee.

Terminals were closed on one OffPeak shift for an ILWU Stop Work meeting, and some terminals were closed on the Presidents’ Day Holiday.
