San Pedro Bay witnesses steady truck dwell time in January

Goods passing through the San Pedro Bay Port complex and bound for local distribution by truck spent an average of 2.89 days at port terminals during January.

According to the Pacific Merchant Shipping Association (PMSA), the January data increased slightly from the December average of 2.69 days.

Dwell time for rail-destined freight decreased somewhat in January, with cargo spending an average of 4.72 days at terminals, down from 4.98 days the previous month.

PMSA noted that the January truck dwell duration is greater than typical. The proportion of containers that remain for five or more days is one element that influences the average stay duration for local and rail-bound containers.

In January, 5.3 per cent of local containers stayed for more than five days, while 28.5 per cent of rail-bound containers stayed for five days or more.

Natasha Villa, External Affairs Manager of PMSA, said: “Both truck and rail dwell times remained steady from month to month. Lower dwell times indicate cargo is moving through the supply chain at a good pace without delays.”

The U.S. Department of Energy announced in October 2023 that it would award up to $1.2 billion to a public-private partnership created to spearhead the development of a hydrogen hub at San Pedro Bay ports.
