Please be advised that the Traffic Mitigation Fee (PierPass) at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will be increased by 1.9 percent beginning August 1, 2019. The incremental fee mirrors the 1.9 percent increase in longshore wage and assessment rates that went into effect on June 29.
The TMF will increase from $31.52 to $32.12 per TEU (from $63.04 to $64.24 per FEU) and is assessed on non-exempt containers. Exempt containers include empty containers, containers subject to a fee imposed by the Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority, and transshipment cargo. Though AGL’s billing process remains unchanged, the rates billed will be adjusted to reflect the change in PierPass.
AGL will continue to monitor supply chain related events and advise you of any information that may impact the planning of your supply chain.
