The reason why we still have congestion at the Port of Oakland is clear, it's not in the best interest of the Marine Terminal Operators until they pass a pierpass type system to suck more money from the truckers and BCO.
It's a disgrace to blame others and create chaos in order to force a private taxation system on others in the intermodal chain.
California law (SB45) must be enforced to stop the inefficiencies MTO's are creating by wasting truckers hours of service.
There is no need for pierpass type system to delay the velocity of intermodal traffic, trucker want to move containers fast, BCO want their containers fast, it's the MTO's and Ocean Carriers that are making millions in per diem, demurrage and kickback's from chassis.
This type of agreement should not be supported by the FMC, it creates an imbalance of power in the intermodal chain promoting inefficiencies.
The FMC report on Port Congestion has many great ideas the common theme is all the Port Authorities, MTO's and Shiplines have their hand out for millions of dollars in funding. No mention of trucker funding direct, only others trying to make the trucker more efficient.
Truckers need a seat at the table to help resolve congestion issues.
FMC needs more funding to control the abuse by the MTO's and Ocean Carriers.
