Long Term Dwell Fee

Long Term Dwell Fee

This past year has been a difficult one for all.  Despite our best efforts, the local import container dwell at WUT has continued to increase which has directly impacted our operations and terminal fluidity.  The increased dwell has also caused additional  yard rehandling and the need to constantly restock the RTG delivery rows.   WUT has made every effort to make and keep cargo available for pick up, but unfortunately the long dwell containers are making this extremely difficult.

Effective November 15th, 2021, all local import units that have exceeded 15 calendar days on terminal will incur a $310 Long Stay Rehandling Fee.  Units will be placed on hold and payment will be due prior to making an appointment.  Payments will be a manual process to begin with and will require payment via check or wire transfer but will eventually be made through eModal. This action is designed to encourage the rapid movement of local import containers.

 

WUT urges customers to pick up high dwelling units before the inception date to avoid the additional fee.

 

Thank you for your understanding.
