Truck and rail dwell time remains steady at San Pedro Bay Ports

Through January, cargo traveling through the San Pedro Bay Port complex and destined for local delivery via truck spent an average of 2.89 days at port terminals, translating to a slight uptick from December’s average of 2.69 days.

The January truck dwell time is within the normal range, said the Pacific Merchant Shipping Association (PMSA).

Dwell time for rail-destined cargo saw a small decrease in January with cargo spending an average of 4.72 days at terminals, compared to 4.98 days during the previous month.

PMSA noted that the January truck dwell time is slightly higher than the normal range.

A factor contributing to the average dwell time for local and rail-bound containers is the proportion of containers that dwell for five or more days. In January, 5.3% of local containers dwelled for more than five days; 28.5% of rail-bound containers dwelled for five or more days.

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