SSA Terminals OICT Berth 55- 59: OICT TO IMPLEMENT EXTENDED GATE FEE

Due to the severe congestion, the Oakland International Container Terminal (OICT) has been sponsoring extended gates with the assistance of the Port of Oakland’s Transition Assistance Plan (TAP). The current program, expiring during the last week of June was operated free of charge. This will be replaced with a “fee based” program which is detailed below.

In order to continue to operate four extended gates weekly, effective June 27, 2016, OICT Is implementing a $30 per container transaction fee for all LOADED import (local delivery and IPI cargo) and export containers for both the day and night shifts.

  • This will not apply to empty transactions.
  • There is no expiry date for this fee.

Topocean has established an account for the payment of this fee on behalf of our clients per request. Should you have any question please contact your sales representative.

 

If any clients would like to pay the fee directly the links to the options are listed below.
