Dear Valued Customer,
On August 1, 2017, the Traffic Mitigation Fee (TMF) at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach is increasing by 2.3 percent, according to the West Coast MTO Agreement (WCMTOA).
Effective August 1, TMF rates for both twenty and forty foot containers will be:
$72.09 per TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) which is an increase of $1.6 over the current price
$144.18 per FEU (forty-foot equivalent unit) which is an increase of $3.2 over the current price
The TMF is charged on containers that are moved between 3 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays. No fee is charged on containers moved during off-peak shifts of 6 p.m. to 3 a.m. on weekdays or 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays, therefore giving movers of cargo an incentive to import and export goods through the ports during off-peak hours.
