TMF Increase Effective 8/1/2011

Effective today, the 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.

By nearly doubling the number of operating hours per week, 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 requiring additional infrastructure. Staffing the additional shifts (currently four to five per week, depending on the terminal) also provides additional work opportunities for truckers and cargo operations due to expanded economic activity in and around the ports.
