PORT OF OAKLAND PROTESTCargo interests transiting through West Coast ports, especially Oakland, realize we are not yet on the other side of the effects of the contract related labor slowdowns. We continue to experience congestion, long lines, chassis shortages and slow truck turn times.

The Port of Oakland has convened an Efficiency Task Force. The purpose of the task force is to exchange ideas and formulate strategies to improve the fluidity of cargo at the Port of Oakland. Members of the task force include cargo owners, terminal operators, ocean carriers, chassis providers, labor leaders, associations, port staff and motor carriers, and Devine is honored to have a seat at the table. Last month was the first meeting of the task force, and we have to say the mood from all attendees was cooperative and collaborative. Every one of these vital parties wants the port to succeed and be a viable gateway.

The initiatives discussed were:

• Saturday Gates (aka OakPass) to increase gate operating hours at the port thereby alleviating congestion. There is a $17/TEU fee assessed on containers moved Monday-Friday in order to pay for the extra gate. Much like PierPass, cargo owners will have to register with OakPass to pay the fee on-line.
• Central Valley Container Yard to exchange empty equipment in the Central Valley and improve equipment utilization.
There will be future meetings of the whole task force as well as break out meetings to discuss specific topics in the weeks ahead. We will keep you posted on the progress.
