Noel Hacegaba, chief operating officer of the Port of Long Beach, emphasized that promoting faster container transportation is of great significance to alleviating the congestion that plagues productivity.

He said: "This (containers overdue) accounts for about 40% of all the containers currently on the terminal. The shipment of all these containers before Sunday will require unprecedented coordinated efforts, but it must be done."

Some importers expressed that they were worried that they would be entangled in these costs, and some had received letters informing them of the additional costs.

Mario Cordero, executive director of the Port of Long Beach, explained at the port update press conference: "This fine is not meant to pass on costs." "We are using all the tools we can use to move containers." Long Beach Chief Operating Officer Hacegaba added.
