       十几家在洛杉矶港和长滩港的海运码头运营商修改PierPass组织“非高峰计划”的提议遭到了多个托运商的反对。尽管如此,两大代表集卡司机的组织以及洛杉矶港都表示“基本支持”这一提议。

 

       最近,托运人需要缴纳一笔交通缓解费(TMF),作为日间在码头提发货柜的费用。这项费用鼓励托运人在夜间和星期六进行集装箱交易,同时也为码头提供资金以冲抵长时间的运营成本。PierPass这项“非高峰计划”将美国两个最繁忙港口大约一半的卡车运输量转移到了非高峰时间段,从而减少了交通堵塞和空气污染。

 

       但在免缴交通缓解费的期间,不断上涨的费用以及码头外集卡扎堆情况遭到托运人抗议,因此港口方正计划修改PierPass计划。在新修订的计划“PierPass 2.0”中,交通缓解费用将减半,但全天收取。托运司机需要提前预约方能进入集装箱码头,并进行集装箱的提取和运输。
 
       在一份联合声明中,港口运输协会(HTA)和加州运输协会(CTA)一致认为:“新修订的计划平衡了白天和夜间的集卡流量,以较低的价格对所有货物重新征收交通缓解费,并且重点实施了先预约后入港的措施以确保港口顺利运作。这些改变都具有建设性的意义。”

Drayage driver groups support PierPass changes

 

While a proposal by a dozen marine terminals operating in the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach to modify the PierPass OffPeak system has been criticized by several shipper groups, two organizations that represent drayage truck drivers, as well as the Port of Los Angeles itself, say they are “generally supportive” of it.

 

Currently, a traffic mitigation fee (TMF) is imposed on shippers for containers that are picked up and delivered at the terminals during the day. That fee has encouraged shippers to do container transactions at night and on Saturdays, while providing funds to the terminals to offset the cost of operating for longer hours. By shifting about half of the truck traffic at the nation’s two busiest ports to off-peak hours, the PierPass program has reduced traffic congestion and air pollution.

 

But with shippers critical of the growing amount of the fee and trucks gathering outside terminals around the time the TMF is waived, the terminals are planning to modify the PierPass program. Under what some are calling “PierPass 2.0,” the TMF would be about halved but charged around the clock. Pickups and deliveries of containers would continue to be spread out by requiring truckers to have an appointment to enter the container terminals.

 

In a joint letter, the Harbor Trucking Association (HTA) and the California Trucking Association’s Intermodal Conference (CTA), said, “We see the efforts to smooth out truck traffic between day and night shifts, the reapplication of the TMF to all cargo at a lower price and the emphasis on appointments to ensure smooth operations at the ports’ container terminals generally constructive.”
