What is a Pier Pass fee?

The Pier Pass fee is a single flat fee charged for both daytime and nighttime container moves at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. This fee is $31.52 per TEU and $63.04 for all other size containers.

As of November 19th, 2018, this flat fee system, the revised OffPeak program known as PierPass 2.0, replaced the original OffPeak congestion based model. In the original PierPass system, a fee was assessed if cargo is moved out of the Port of Los Angeles/Long Beach port during peak hours. The LA/LB port had implemented the Pier Pass traffic mitigation fee as part of an effort to reduce traffic congestion in the region.

If applicable, a Pier Pass fee will appear on your Flexport quote or invoice as a destination charge.
