PierPass Fee Description: This is a supplementary terminal handling charge that applies to the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles for both FCL and LCL.

It is applied for pickups only during peak hours (weekday normal daytime hours). By encouraging off-peak pickups, it eases congestion during peak hours and covers the additional cost of nighttime operation.

AKA Traffic Mitigation Fee (TMF).

PierPass Fee Tips: This is a standard pass-through charge and legally not negotiable. That is, the forwarder can’t adjust this charge.
