New Fees Spark US Truck Turn Cost Debate 


As industry stakeholders continue the cost debate surrounding new street-turn fees imposed by several ocean carriers, the JOC asked Todd Ericksrud to weigh in:

Ocean carriers claim the fees will be on truckers and not BCOs. But Todd Ericksrud, CEO of MatchBack Systems, believes ultimately importers and exporters will pay through higher dray rates.

"This is very problematic for trucking companies have been successful building networks around a port [with importers and exporters sharing assets]. Many of these companies offer discounts to BCOs to create those matchbacks, but now that's in jeopardy," he said.
