Update: LA/LB Terminals New Storage Charge Postponed

Dear Valued Customer, 


Pursuant to our message of November 5, 2021 which stated the new storage charge on long dwell containers had been delayed from November 1 to November 15, we have received notice it will be postponed further until Monday, November 22, 2021.


From the information received to date it seems that payments and releases will not be handled consistently between the various terminals and steamship lines. Some terminals and steamship lines will require payment prior to pickup, while others will bill after the fact. In the event that charges are billed after the fact, OEC will endeavor to invoice customers as quickly as possible. Please understand that importers will be liable for all charges regardless.


In order to avoid or minimize these charges, it is imperative that customers expedite removal of their containers from the terminals. It is the customers’ responsibility to remove their containers; OEC will not accept liability for any reason.


Please feel free to contact your OEC Sales or Customer Service Representative with any questions.


Sincerely yours, 


OEC Group
