The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have once again announced a delay in the implementation of the Container Dwell Fee to December 13, 2021. Originally announced to begin November 1, the fee has been delayed several times due to the gradual improvement of long-dwelling cargo at the terminals. According to the executive directors of both ports, they will reassess fee implementation after another week of monitoring the data.

The Container Dwell Fee is a temporary policy to charge a fee of $100 after nine dwell days for containers moving by truck, and after six dwell days for containers moving by rail. The fee will increase by $100 increments for each day the container remains at the terminal.
