Long Beach Trucking Increases

Due to the high port congestion at local Long Beach ports, not only has it become difficult to find container transportation it is also becoming more costly. Harbor truckers are charging a port congestion surcharge that could range anywhere from $50 to $100 per hour. In addition more and more truckers are straying away from hauls requiring port attention. You can find yourself paying up to double the average cost for load moving from a Long Beach port outward. No definite solutions have been reported regarding the chassis shortage and as of now the ports predict the congestion will continue to increase.
