In-Terminal Truck Turn Time

 

Asia. On a monthly basis, we report the average in-terminal truck turn time for Southeast Asia terminals and Japan terminals. For the terminals in Southeast Asia, the average gate turn time is defined as gate in time to gate out time, in other words, how long the trucker is actually in the terminal. This measure does not include any time spent waiting outside of the gate before entry. For the terminals in Japan, the measure is defined as gate in time (or consolidated gate in) to cargo roll on/off at the respective terminal (or berth).

MOL Target:
Average an in-terminal truck turn time of 20 minutes or less for Laem Chabang TIPS and 30 minutes or less for Cai Mep and Japan terminals.

In June 2013, TIPS just had 5 new RTGs installed in July that can stack the containers to 5 tiers in the container yard. The total RTG in TIPS increased to 14 units from 12 units. This can enhance the operation smoothly and quickly with no congestion.

North America. On a monthly basis, each TraPac terminal reports the average in-terminal truck turn time. The average gate turn time is defined as gate-in time to gate-out time, in other words, how long the trucker is actually in the terminal. The average includes total moves in and out (import, export, local, and IPI) for all customers. This measure does not include any time spent waiting outside of the gate before entry.

2013 Results. We met the KPI target throughout 2013. For TraPac Los Angeles, the October result was the best in the past 12 months. TraPac Jacksonville and TraPac Oakland have also met the target throughout 2013. Jacksonville achieved its best result of 2013 in April and Oakland achieved it's best result of 2013 in November.

2012 Results. For TraPac Los Angeles, we met our KPI target in every month of 2012 except August and September. In those months, there had been a shortage of chassis in Los Angeles. As a result:

(1)TraPac Los Angeles had to deck more export containers upon receiving them at the terminal in order to have bare chassis available to discharge imports. Therefore, drivers delivering export loads to the terminal incurred some delay since the "flip" operation takes longer as compared to a driver simply parking the container on a chassis in the yard.

(2)Since TraPac Los Angeles was close to full capacity there were a limited number of parking stalls available. This means that drivers must search the yard looking for an empty space, also resulting in a longer turn time.

(3)TraPac Los Angeles had to discharge a greater number of imports to the ground. Therefore, drivers had to wait in the "flip" line in order to get a specific container mounted onto the chassis.

MOL worked to expeditiously resolve the issue so that turn times could quickly return to the standard we have set. In September 2012 and October 2012, the results in Los Angeles improved slightly. In November 2012 and December 2012, they regressed slightly. In January 2013, February 2013, and March 2013, the result improved again. In April 2013, the turn-time increased due to congestion as a result of an ongoing construction project. However, we are still meeting the goal of 30 minutes or less turn-time.

For Oakland, turn times increased in April 2013 due to congestion as a result of the JAS service moving from PAOH back to TraPac. However, the result improved in June 2013, held steady in July 2013, and only slightly increased in August 2013.
