As previously communicated, the port authorities of Los Angeles and Long Beach had, effective 25 October, provided notice of intention to start billing a “Container Excess Dwell Fee” commencing 1 November.
The fee would go into effect should the ports not see a material improvement in the clearance of long-dwelling containers at the terminals. This advisory serves as a notification to inform customers of the decision to further delay the introduction of the fee by an additional week until 29 November.
Terminal availability through holiday weekend:
- All terminals are closed for Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday 25 November
We continue to monitor the situation and will keep you updated. Please contact our Customer teams with any enquiries relating to specific bookings.
