Traffic Mitigation Fee (TMF) - Los Angeles & Long Beach Ports



Effective August 8, 2016, the Traffic Mitigation Fee (TMF) will increase to $70.49 per TEU and $140.98 per FEU.  Please see the attached Press Release dated July 8, 2016.

 Direct Pay accounts claiming and paying for Import Containers prior to the rate increase will still be responsible for the entire new fee if the containers move on or after August 8, 2015.

 If an Import container is claimed/paid for at the current rates of $69.17 TEU /$138.34 FEU but moves during Peak hours on or after August 8, 2016, then an additional $1.32/TEU or $2.64/FEU will need to be paid after the move.

 Containers may be claimed at the new rate after close of business (6pm PDT) Friday, August 5, 2016.  Do not attempt to unclaim and reclaim unmoved Import containers claimed prior to 6pm on August 5th as this could prevent the container from being released on or after August 8th. To minimize the administrative burden, we recommend that you delay claiming/prepaying containers until after 6 pm on Friday, Aug 5th for containers anticipated to move on or after August 8, 2016. 

 Our Customer Service Center representatives will contact you after August 8th to resolve any balance(s) due. 

 Direct Pay Exports will be billed based on the fee rate in place at the time of the gate transaction and do not require prepayment.


Keeping you informed
