The latest developments in the Port of Long Beach and Los Angeles! Has container congestion in US ports really eased?

On November 22, the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach jointly issued an announcement announcing that after meeting with the US port envoy John Porcari and industry stakeholders, they decided to postpone the collection of the “container overdue detention fee” from the shipping company for the second time, and the new charging time It is tentatively scheduled for November 29.

The Port of Long Beach and the Port of Los Angeles originally planned to charge a congestion charge of US$100 for each imported container from November 15 , And each additional day will increase the income by 100 US dollars, until the container reaches the port terminal.

According to the statistics on November 22, there will be approximately 45,000 containers facing fines, and if the fees are not (again) delayed, there will be approximately $45 million in fines.

Earlier, the United States stated that the entire purpose of charging this fee was to speed up the transportation of containers out of the port and solve some bottlenecks in the supply chain.

From some data perspectives, this move depends on the congestion of the supply chain has been significantly improved.

For example, at the end of October, the number of containers with a stay time of 9 days or more was about 70,000.

However, the pace of improvement is clearly slowing down rapidly-in the past week, the number of long-term containers in the LA/LB area has dropped by a total of 3,000. From the data of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the decline in the number of long-term containers seems to be at the cost of an increase in the number of short-term stranded containers. Take the data of the Port of Los Angeles as an example. The report of the port from Monday (see below) shows that in the past week, the total number of containers at the terminal has actually increased, not decreased.

Judging from the current data, the pressure from the port’s “demurrage” does not seem to fundamentally solve the problem. It just changes the priority of the consignee for taking the containers, but it does not reduce the number of containers staying in the terminal. Total amount.

The number of congested ships is also still at a high level

A new report by VesselsValue shows that the waiting queue for container ships outside the Long Beach and Los Angeles terminals on the west coast of the United States is slightly shorter, but still very long.

So far, there are about 79 ships anchored or drifting in the waters outside California ports. Compared with the data of 81 ships 10 days ago, there is little progress.

The combined capacity of these 79 ships is approximately 567,215 TEU.
