UPDATE 14th February 2022
Since the announcement of the container dwelling surcharge for the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach in October 2021, the scheme has been postponed for 13 consecutive weeks with a 70% decline of ageing cargo on the docks to date. The new commencement date is being penned as February 18th.
The emergency fee was initially announced to incentivise the movement of containers in water-front terminals scheduled to be moved by truck and rail but has yet to be enforced, however the ports will be closely monitoring the flow of cargo.
UPDATE 30th November 2021
Confirmed by the Port of Los Angeles, the emergency container dwelling surcharge originally scheduled to come into play on November 15th, across The Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach, has been pushed back until December 6th 2021.
An improvement in the twin ports' terminal fluidity has prompted the postponement, seeing a combined 37% decline in 'ageing-cargo' across the ports since the surcharges were initially announced back in October, an 11% improvement on mid-November numbers.
