        国际码头总公司(Total Terminals International,TTI)是长滩港新举措的启动伙伴,该举措通过延长卡车作业时间来提高货物的运输速度。此举正是因为大型集装箱的激增,而这种激增也正在扼杀生产力并危及零售商的假日交货计划。
 
        最大集装箱港口运营商位于T码头,它将提供更灵活的预约窗口,鼓励卡车司机在深夜和黎明时分运送集装箱。司机可以在周一至周四晚11点至凌晨1点30分取走集装箱。闸门会在凌晨3点至7点之间为有预先安排的卡车开放双程运输—空集装箱落地和装货卸货。港务局周二表示,有预约的司机可以在任何时间内进出,而不是被严格限制在其预约时段。
 
        在非高峰时段提箱,可以在不那么拥堵的情况下为卡车提供服务来增加港口货物吞吐量,并且由于路面交通得到了缓解,同时也加快了仓库的运作。
 
        长滩港周五宣布了延长闸口开放时间。洛杉矶港也正在测试永久性开放周末闸口。这些计划都是与美国交通部和白宫协商后而实施的,以应对供应链对企业和经济的干扰。
 
        据港口官员称,在洛杉矶港和长滩港的海运码头,从船上卸货的平均停留时间已经延长到6天。由于消费者的订购狂潮几乎没有减弱的迹象,再加上仓库空间、卡车司机、设备、码头运输能力以及空间的不足,以及新冠疫情对码头劳工的影响,使得码头难以处理船舶中倾倒的集装箱。随着集装箱的堆积,船舶作业的时间也在增加,导致岸外有70多艘船在排队等待靠泊和卸货。
 
        长滩港务局表示,国际码头总公司会定期评估整夜运作计划,并做出适当的调整。码头也会在评估该计划效果的同时,会对闸门利用率、集装箱停留时间和卡车司机的停留时间进行监测。
 
        关于夜间闸门运营费的问题,长滩港副执行董事诺埃尔•哈切加巴(Noel Hacegaba)在邮件中回复说:“到现在为止,还没有确定任何补贴。随着我们扩大试点项目,我们计划与我们的终端合作,利用夜间闸门费为我们的客户制定激励措施。"

Night moves: Long Beach begins trial of extended-hour cargo pickup
 
Total Terminals International is the launch partner for the Port of Long Beach’s new initiative to increase cargo velocity by expanding gate hours for truck pickup. The move comes amid a huge container surge that is choking productivity and jeopardizing retailers’ holiday deliveries.
 
The operator of the port’s largest container terminal, located on Pier T, will encourage truckers to make late-night and pre-dawn trips for containers by offering more flexible appointment windows. Shuttle drivers will be able to pick up containers from 11 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Mondays through Thursdays. The gates will be open for prearranged double moves — empty container drop-off plus loaded pickup — between 3 and 7 a.m. In both cases, drivers with appointments will be able to show up at any time rather than being held to a strict reservation slot, the port authority said Tuesday.
 
Making containers available at off-peak hours is designed to increase throughput by servicing trucks at less busy times and help speed warehouse trips because of reduced levels of traffic on roadways.
 
The Port of Long Beach on Friday announced the plan for extended gate hours. The Port of Los Angeles is testing permanent weekend gates. The programs were implemented in consultation with the U.S. Department of Transportation and the White House in response to supply chain disruptions on businesses and the economy.
 
The average dwell time for containers unloaded from vessels at marine terminals in the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach has stretched to six days, according to port officials. Shortages of warehouse space, truck drivers and equipment, on-dock rail capacity, and terminal space, combined with COVID restrictions on longshore labor, have made it difficult for terminals to process containers being dumped by container ships amid a consumer ordering spree that shows few signs of abating. As the funnel for containers tightens, the time to work vessels has increased, resulting in an off-shore queue of more than 70 box ships waiting to park. 
 
 TTI will periodically evaluate the late-night trial program and make necessary adjustments, the Long Beach port authority said. The terminal will monitor gate utilization, dwell time of import containers and truck driver time on the dock as it assesses the program’s effectiveness. 
 
“As of now, no subsidies have been defined. As we scale up the pilot program, we plan to work with our terminals to develop incentives for our customers to utilize the night gates,” Deputy Director Noel Hacegaba said in an email response to a query about how the overnight gate operation will be paid for.
