ONE MORE THING

August, 2017

The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will increase the PierPass fee to $144.18 per 40′ effective August 1, 2017.  The PierPass program assesses a Traffic Mitigation Fee (TMF) on all loaded container transactions completed during the day shift while the same transactions at night and on weekends are free.

The original goal of the program was to reduce traffic congestion on roadways surrounding the port area.  There has always been quite a bit of discord about the amount of the fee and the lack of visibility of how it is spent.
