Starting on December 1, the CMA CGM Group will offer incentives to importers to pick up their containers from terminals at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach within eight days of their arrival. This early container pickup incentive program will run for 90 days and is intended to help improve fluidity at America’s largest import gateway.

Shippers who pick up their containers within the eight-day window will receive $100 per container for daytime weekday pickups and $200 per container for night and weekend pickups.

CMA CGM says the incentive funds will “offset costs incurred by tensions on [customers’] supply chains.”

The company anticipates that it could pay out more than $22m in the program’s 90 days.

CMA CGM will also financially support the Fenix Marine Services terminal in expanding its hours of operation so that containers can be picked up day and night seven days a week.
