Just on Monday, LA / LB port issued a statement: the port has made great progress in handling cargo accumulation, so the collection time of container overdue detention fee will be postponed again.


Meanwhile, Fenix marine services, a subsidiary of CMA CGM, will launch an incentive program to reward importers who pick up goods quickly.


LA/LB port postponed the collection of container overdue detention fee for the third time


The surcharge was originally scheduled to start on November 15. So far, this is the third time to postpone the charge. The Port Authority said that since the plan was announced on October 25, the number of containers on the terminal has decreased by 37%.


However, in the past three weeks, the number of containers stranded for more than nine days has increased to 23000, and the number of containers on the terminal has also rebounded.


However, good progress has been made in some areas. According to the report, the average residence time of containers decreased from 11 days to 5.7 days, and the average residence time of containers transported by railway also decreased to two days.


In addition, another 55 container ships were waiting to berth at the San Pedro Bay anchorage on Monday, down from last week. However, the average waiting time of ships is still increasing, reaching 18.8 days.

CMA CGM launches bonus incentive plan


On November 29, CMA CGM announced that it would implement an early container pickup incentive program in LA / lb port to speed up the container circulation of the two ports.


The plan will be implemented on December 1 for a period of 90 days. The details are as follows:


  • for importers who pick up containers within 8 days of container delivery and during the daytime of working days, USD 100 will be awarded for each container;


  • for importers who pick up containers within 8 days of container delivery, at night or on weekends on working days, USD 200 will be awarded for each container.


The total expenditure of the plan may exceed $22 million. Although it has only Fenix terminal, the incentive measures will apply to any terminal in LA / lb port.


Gene seroka, executive director of Los Angeles, said: "CMA CGM's approach is very good, which may improve the liquidity of containers. Coupled with Fenix's extension of terminal time, CMA CGM has demonstrated its strategic leadership and cooperation ability during this period."
