Revised Port Congestion Fee: All South Florida Port Terminals
Due to the continued port congestion all over South Florida in both PortMiami and Port Everglades, extreme delays and lines are accumulating daily. Truckers are spending anywhere from 2-7 hours idle, simply waiting to retrieve or deliver containers. This situation has caused many independent truckers to decline to work at the terminal. It simply makes no sense for them as they are paid per trip and the excessive wait is a loss for them.
Effective Friday, May 28, our trucking companies will implement the temporary Congestion Fee in the amount of $150 for ALL terminals at both Port Everglades and PortMiami.
This fee is both for import and export cargo.
We will closely monitor this situation and will remove the fees once the conditions improve.
