Inland Rail Transit Advisories
We are also experiencing congestion at all major rail facilities in Chicago, Columbus, and Los Angeles UP and BNSF rail ramps. We expect delays in picking-up and delivering containers at these locations.
U.S. East Coast
- Charleston Chassis Shortage - Due to a continued shortage of available chassis in the Charleston market, we are experiencing extended delays in pick-ups, deliveries, and drayage to/from the rail facilities.
- CSX Update: Export to JAX - Due to continued congestion in Jacksonville, we have observed persistent delays in train operations for cargo arriving in Jacksonville ICTF for load out of Trapac.
- South Carolina Ports Authority - Due to increased volume for Import and Export cargo into Charleston, SCSPA is reporting a delay in operations between the terminals and railroads. There is currently an embargo for all export units from Greer Ramp to USCHS/USNTS except for certain customers.
- CSX Update - Charleston and Savannah 03/07 Update - Effective Today, CSX RV’s to Charleston from all origins havebeen decrease by 25% due to serious congestion at the CHS Terminal in the past, Charleston and Savannah allocations have been interchangeable, going forward, customers will not be able to use RV's interchangeably between the two ports; allocations will be established for each destination.
- NS Update - As a result of increased congestion and volume into the Norfolk Southern facility in Charleston, NS has closed for ingate at inland facilities for routes destined to Charleston. Greer is now closed for exports except for specified customers. Detailed allocations per lane: Huntsville to Charleston (5), Austell to Charleston (25), Memphis to Charleston (40), All Other Destinations (except Greer and Meridian) to Charleston (0), Kansas City to all destinations (190).
U.S. Mid West
- Barbours Cut and Bayport - Houston Chassis Shortage - Chassis deficits continue to be reported on a weekly basis due to ongoing congestion in the area. TRAC chassis can be utilized as our approved secondary provider.
- Chicago Chassis Shortage - Due to a shortage of available chassis in Chicago, we continue to observe extended delays in pick-ups and deliveries.
- Chicago Rail Ramp Congestion – Bedford Park - CSX Railroad has advised that congestion remains an operational
concern at the Bedford Park Facility in Chicago area and is requesting further assistance in arranging pick up of dwelling units.
- BNSF Logistics Park (Chicago)- As part of ongoing efforts to provide a more efficient alternative for units that may dwell well beyond facility free time, BNSF has extended its off-site dray program at Logistics Park Chicago Intermodal Facility to generate additional parking capacity and reduce the impact of long-dwelling units on hub operations and overall efficiency. Shipments moved to off-site lot will remain visible in BNSF’s inventory through customer web tools. BNSF will continue to assess and collect storage charges on shipments that have been moved off-site. Additionally, units may be grounded at offsite locations to generate greater chassis availability for the continued flow of containers.
- The LPC off-site lot entrance is located at 3201 Centerpoint Way, Joliet, IL 60436. Shipments arriving at this lot will be identified on notifications as being at ITSCONJOL. Units will be ground stacked which will require drivers to bring their own chassis. Lift hours at the ITS ConGlobal Joliet Depot are detailed below:
- Monday thru Friday 6am – 10pm
- Saturday 7am – 330pm
- Sunday Closed
U.S. West Coast
- Increased Dwell for Import Rail Cargo (SEA) - Due to severe terminal congestion, we continue to observe operational delays, resulting in extended dwell time.
- Increased Dwell for Import Rail Cargo (LAX/LGB) - Due to gate capacity restrictions, limited reservations (RVs), rail car shortages and daily ingate restrictions at our major rail facilities in LAX/LGB (BNSF & UP), import rail units (both on-dock and off-dock) are experiencing increased delays.
- Chassis Shortage Santa Teresa - Availability of DCLI equipment continues to be extremely limited. TRAC chassis should be utilized as an approved secondary provider; inventory has been observed to be very low, as well.
- Terminal Dwell Fee - SSA Terminals (Pier A (LGB), OICT (OAK), T-18 (SEA)) have implemented a temporary storage charge in addition to the normal port demurrage charges on all import loaded containers discharged at facilities on the West Coast. The failure of importers to pick up containers in a timely manner has created severe congestion issues that has prevented terminal operators from properly servicing vessels destined for their terminals. Extended Dwell Time Fee will apply on a temporary basis to all loaded import containers, in addition to existing demurrage and port tariff fees:
- No charges for free time (up to seven (7)) days after a container is available for delivery)
- $50 per day for the next five days of storage thereafter (days 1-5 after free time)
- $75 per day for the next five days of storage thereafter (days 6-10 after free time)
- $100 per day for the next five days of storage thereafter (days 11-15 after free time)
- $150 per day for any days thereafter.
- Export loaded containers will not be subject to the Extended Dwell Time Fee. The importer of record in the shipping documents will be responsible for paying or arranging payment of the Extended Dwell Time Fee. Once the fee has been paid, the container will show as available in Operator’s container tracking system. Appointments on import lanes may not be made until the fee has been paid and the container is showing as available on the Forecast website.
- Extended Dwell Fee (ITS Terminal, LGB) - Effective Monday, January 10, 2022, ITS will be implementing a Temporary Storage Charge in addition to the normal port demurrage/storage charges on all loaded import containers due to severe congestion issues. The intent of this Temporary Storage Charge is to encourage cargo interests to pick up their containers timely, which will allow for a return to a more normalized vessel operation schedule. Once this has been accomplished, ITS intends to rescind the additional charge.
- The following, cumulative, fees will apply to all loaded import containers at the rates, and for the temporary effective period: $48 per day commencing on the first day after expiration of free time, for up to five days (e.g., days 1-5 after free time); $72 per day thereafter, for up to five additional days (e.g., days 6-10 after free time); $96 per day thereafter, for up to five additional days (e.g., days 11-15 after free time), and $165 per day for any days thereafter (e.g., all days from day 16 and after).
- Extended Dwell Fee (TTI Terminal, LGB) - Effective Monday January 10, 2022, to reduce excessive terminal congestion, Total Terminals International LLC (TTI) will implement the following, cumulative, Extended On-Terminal Storage/Terminal Congestion Fee for all inbound loaded containers that remain in TTI’s Long Beach marine terminal more than eight calendar days following the date of discharge:
- No Extended On-Terminal Storage/Terminal Congestion Fee for calendar storage days 1 through 8 the container is on terminal and available for delivery.
- $100 per day for days 9 through 14; $150 per day for all days thereafter.
