Beginning in early 2005, marine terminal operators at the port complex of Los Angeles-Long Beach will start charging importers and exporters a fee to use the terminals during the day, in hopes that more terminal traffic will shift to night and weekend gate hours.

The program, known as PierPass, will charge a $20 fee per TEU to shippers who deliver or pick up containers between 3:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The 13 container terminal operators at the port complex will use the revenues from the program to offset the added costs they will incur for operating the 5 off-peak gates each week.
