The West Coast Marine Terminal Operators Agreement (WCMTOA) has posted their gate hour schedule for the upcoming Martin Luther King weekend. Only APMT will remain closed for the entire period and as noted there will be no Saturday evening gates at any of the area terminals. WCMTOA comprises the 12 marine container terminals in the ports of LA and Long Beach.
Pier Pass continues its work with the Tioga Group which it contracted in November. Tioga and its partner World Class Logistics is studying traffic mitigation, turn times and possible alternatives to the current gate hours and mitigation fees. Under Pier Pass over 40 million truck moves have been taken out of weekly daytime traffic in and around the ports in Southern California.
Tioga Group’s study results and recommendations will be presented to WCMTOA and Pier Pass sometime during the first quarter of this year.
