Reported Container dwell time at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach has increased, following the current cargo surge.
Containers remained an average of 4.3 days upon arrival to their respective terminals during the month of September.
This is the second highest dwell time average in any month since PMSA began tracking this data in 2016.
The highest dwell time was in January 2019 when beneficial cargo owners (BCOs) rushed to bring in cargo before the tariffs on various Chinese products were enforced.
Similarly, import volumes at San Pedro Bay ports have been on the rise as retailers and manufacturers replenish their inventories, prepare for upcoming holidays, and await the possibility of another surge in COVID-19 infections.
