Pier Pass considers extended gates

485 trucks

PierPass, which is operated by container terminal operators at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, have hired The Tioga Group to explore ways of providing further traffic mitigation benefits at the Southern California port complex. The two alternatives currently under consideration for traffic reduction are appointments to control traffic flow, combined with a flat fee on both daytime and nighttime cargo moves; and port-wide peel-off, in which trucks would operate like taxis in an airport queue, each truck picking up the next container in the stack, rather than a specific container that must be located and picked among hundreds of others. Hybrid models may also be considered, PierPass said.
