LA Port Container Dwell Fee – UPDATE

LA Port Improvements Delay Dwell Fee

 

***UPDATE – The Container Dwell Fee will now not be considered before 6th December***
 

Original Article:

Improvements in the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have led to the delayed introduction of a new ‘Container Excess Dwell Fee’.

The new fee, which rises by $100 increments per container per day, was due to be applied to shipments delayed in the port terminals from the start of this week.

However, since the announcement of the upcoming fee earlier this month, there has been a 26% reduction in the number of containers being held up. Port officials have responded by delaying the introduction of the fee until at least 22 November.

Recommended by President Biden’s supply chain task force,  this penalty for importers is aimed at increasing fluidity at the port’s congested terminals.

The fee will be effective at day 9 of ship’s arrival for shipments moving by truck, and at day 3 for shipments moving by rail. The first day of the fee will be charged at $100 per container, the second day at $200, the third at $300 and so forth.

It remains to be decided whether any further improvements lead to further delays in the introduction of the fee.

Atlantic Pacific are monitoring the situation very closely, if you are concerned about any specific consignments, then please do not hesitate to contact one of the team.
