In an effort to ease congestion, shorten truck turn times and avoid “closed areas of the yard,” TraPac will initiate an appointment system starting next Tuesday, December 6th. Effective this date, all loaded import containers will require a pick up appointment.
As we learned from our previous experience when SSA began requiring an appointment, there will be an adjustment period. Transaction times will likely get worse before they get better. There will be a backlog of containers to sort through. And, it always takes time for everyone in the supply chain to become accustomed to new operating rules.
Please be prepared and be patient as we adjust to the new landscape.
