Temporary Revision to PierPass to Take Effect


The Commission granted a request for expedited review of this amendment to the West Coast MTO Agreement, under which authority the PierPass program was established.

The Federal Maritime Commission is permitting a temporary revision to the PierPass program to go into effect, allowing “off-peak” users of marine terminal gates at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to be exempted from paying the Traffic Mitigation Fee. The exemption lasts from December 1, 2021, through January 31, 2022.
