NIGHT GATES NOT A PASSING FAD

October, 2016

ssa-at-nightWe are pleased to report SSA’s night gates in Oakland will continue for the foreseeable future and will continue at the same cost of $30/loaded container.  Woo-Hoo!

As a recap, in order to accommodate the additional volumes that migrated to SSA after the closure of Ports America in Oakland earlier this year, SSA initiated night gates beginning June 27, 2016.  The extended hours run Monday through Thursday, 6:00pm to 3:00am.  The cost is $30/loaded regardless of the time of day of the container is moved.  The fee is paid directly to SSA by the cargo owner.  If you have any questions about the payment of this fee, please contact SSA: OICTGateFee@SSAMarine.com

We applaud SSA for taking this action.  Not only was there a need for extended hours but they also launched a program at a lower price point and with much greater transparency than the ports to the south of us.  Just sayin’.
