Effective August 8, 2016 the Traffic Mitigation Fee (TMF), also known as PierPass, for the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will increase as follows:
20ft: $70.49 (all types)
40ft/40ft HC: $140.98 (all types)
Quote from PierPass press release:
Beginning August 8, the TMF will be increased to $70.49 per TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) or $140.98 per forty-foot container.
The adjustment falls under Rule 7 of WCMTOA’s Marine Terminal Schedule No. 1, which states, “Beginning in mid-2012, the Fee shall be
adjusted annually to reflect increases in labor costs based on Pacific Maritime Association maritime labor cost figures.” The PMA negotiates
and administers maritime labor agreements with the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU).
