Dear Valued Customer:
Since the announcement of the agreement between the ILWU and PMA, we have seen productivity improvements in the operations of the West Coast Ports. As a result, we are reducing the Terminal Congestion Fee for less-than-container load (LCL) shipments from $6 w/m to $2 w/m. The full container load charges will remain the same at $60 per hour, billed in 15-minute increments, as delays are incurred. The change to our LCL Terminal Congestion Fee will be effective with shipments sailing on or after June 30, 2015.
We will continue to monitor the situation at the Ports on your behalf and update you and our fee structure accordingly.
