UPDATE: Container Dwell Fee On Hold Until Nov. 29

The Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles recently announced new ‘Container Excess Dwell Fees’.  Although carriers will be charged for containers that remain on docks longer than allowed, carriers will pass this new cost onto cargo owners.  The supply chain problem is significant, but cargo owners are harmless in delays moving containers off the docks and will be charged by the carriers for any penalties incurred.  

SFIA joined other concerned organizations on a letter to the Federal Maritime Commission requesting help.

UPDATE: On Monday (11/22), in response to concern over proposed dwell fees, the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach announced a delay on imposing new fees until Nov. 29.

The U.S. Trade Representative has not yet released the key dates and information regarding the exclusion process for List 4. As soon as the USTR releases this information, SFIA will offer a program to assist with List 4 tariff exclusion petitions, just as they are currently doing for List 3 tariff exclusions. List 3 tariff exclusions were submitted on September 30, 2019, and we are waiting on results.
