The West Coast Marine Terminal Operators Agreement (WCMTOA) announced last week that they will be increasing the Traffic Mitigation Fee (TMF), also known to many as a Pier Pass fee, beginning August 1, 2015. The updated TMF will be as follows:
– 20′ container: $69.17 per TEU
– 40′ container $138.34 per TEU
The TMF helps pay for night time and Saturday night operations at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. It has been used to help relieve daytime congestion at the terminals.
