Long Beach terminal pioneers 24/7 opening

[ September 30, 2021   //   ]

The Total Terminals International container terminal on Long Beach’s Pier T is piloting 24-hour operation as part of programme by the port to reduce dwell times. TTI is also opening gates during the third shift, from 3-7am, Monday to Thursday, for two-way, prearranged truck appointments to both drop off and pick up container in the same trip.

Port of Long Beach executive director Mario Cordero said: “We are in the midst of an historic surge in cargo, and our terminal operators and other supply chain partners are giving their all to keep it all moving. We welcome this pilot project by TTI as a first step toward extending gates to 24/7 operations, and we encourage our cargo owners and trucking partners to give this innovative program a try.”
