Pierpass Charge

Shipping containers

Pierpass charge is a Traffic Mitigation Fee (TMF) charged for containers that are moved during peak hours of Monday through Friday, 3 a.m. to 6 p.m at the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports.

The TMF pays for the night and Saturday shifts of the PierPass OffPeak program, designed to relieve daytime congestion in and around these ports and as a financial incentive to move the cargo during less congested periods of the day.

The TMF is charged at $72.09 per TEU.
