CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM

Los Angeles & Long Beach delays pulling trigger on congestion fee

It came down to the wire, but the highly controversial Los Angeles & Long Beach congestion fee backed by the Biden administration is not happening – at least, not yet.

The ports were scheduled to begin charging ocean carriers $100.00 per import container starting Monday, November 15th for boxes moving by truck that dwelled for nine or more days, and for boxes dwelling for six or more days that move by rail. The charge was scheduled to escalate by $100.00 a day until the container left the property.

The ports announced Monday that they will “delay consideration” of the fee until November 22th citing a 26% reduction in long-dwelling containers since the plan was announced on October 25th.

For more information, please call David Lychek, Director – Ocean & Air Services at (905) 882-4880, ext. 1207.
