PierPass, SoCal ports launch program aimed at reducing terminal delays

January 16, 2013

PierPass, in conjunction with the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, announced an initiative this week to study and address issues that cause “trouble tickets†during pickup and delivery at port terminals.

Nearly 1500 trucks (roughly 5 percent of all trucks) per day cause “substantial delays†by either showing up with a container for export without a proper booking number or show up to a terminal for a container that’s not there.
