LOS ANGELES – Beginning next week, a fine of $100 a day per container will be levied against shipping companies that unload cargo too slowly in the two busiest ports in the United States, Port of Los Angeles (POLA) and Port of Long Beach (POLB).

The twin ports said in a joint statement Monday that arriving containers scheduled to be moved by trucks would be allowed to stay for nine days before fines begin, and that containers moving by rail can stay at the ports for three days.

“Beginning Nov 1, the ports will charge ocean carriers with cargo in those two categories $100 per container, increasing in $100 increments per container per day,” the statement read.

Since COVID-19, the foreign trade industry has been affected a lot, whether in terms of source of goods or transportation. Our company has been working hard to reduce these impacts, and can now supply LED refrigerator/freezer lights and shelf lights as usual. It is hoped that the epidemic will end as soon as possible, so that international interaction and trade will be more active and convenient.
