Note 11: The Authority reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to immediately remove import and export loaded containers from the Authority’s facilities and relocate them to an off-terminal Authority or Third-Party storage facility at the expense and risk of the cargo owner after an import or export loaded container is on the terminal for more than thirty (30) consecutive calendar days.  An off-terminal truck relocation charge of $709.00, per container, to a local (within 10 miles) storage facility, or a rail relocation charge of  $945.00, per container, to an inland rail facility and, if applicable, a second rail relocation charge of $473.00, per container, to return the same container back to Garden City Terminal will be assessed to the ocean carrier. Terminal Storage charges will continue to accrue, while the container remains in an off-terminal Authority or Third-Party storage facility, and will be assessed to the ocean carrier. For operating efficiencies, the Authority will not be required to dig for a specific container number stored at the off-terminal storage facilities. The first available container will be provided for subsequent removal from the storage facility.

The Authority, at its sole discretion, will select the off-terminal storage facility. The Authority shall not be responsible for any charges, fines, citations, or other liabilities as a result of hauling loads in violation of weight regulations. Any overweight citation or fine is chargeable to the ocean carrier at cost plus fifteen percent (15%).

Note 12: ISO Tank (loaded or empty) containers of all dimensions, as defined in MTOS Rule 34-505, are deemed as specialty cargo that has stowage limitations in the Container Yard.

Note 13: The Authority reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to Immediately remove empty containers from the Authority’s facilities and relocate them to an off-terminal Authority or Third-Party storage facility at the expense and risk of the ocean carrier when the ocean carrier’s Allowable Empty Container inventory exceeds twenty­ nine percent (29%). An off-terminal truck relocation charge of $709.00, per container, to a local (within 10 miles) storage facility, or a rail relocation charge of $945.00, per container, to an inland rail facility and, if applicable, a second rail relocation charge of $473.00, per container, to return the same container back to Garden City Terminal will be assessed to the ocean earner. Applicable off-terminal empty container storage fees will be assessed to the ocean carrier on a per-container basis and documented in a separate rate quote. For operating efficiencies, the Authority will not be required to dig for a specific container number stored at the off-terminal storage facilities. The first available container will be provided for subsequent removal from the storage facility. The Authority, at its sole discretion, will select the off-terminal storage facility. The Authority shall not be responsible for any charges, fines, citations, or other liabilities as a result of hauling empty containers.

Note 14: BILLING EMPTY CONTAINER STORAGE RATES

If the empty container inventory does not exceed twenty-nine percent (29%) of the allowable empty container inventory (“ACEI”), the ocean carrier will be charged the first-tier empty container storage rate for that month.

If the empty container inventory exceeds the ACEI by thirty percent (30%) or more, the ocean carrier will be charged the tiered empty container storage rate that directly corresponds to the allocation overage. This charge will be assessed on the first day of the second consecutive month that the monthly allocation is exceeded.

The Authority is not required to notify ocean carriers when their empty container inventory approaches or exceeds the ACEI.

Note 15: If the Authority implements a container storage rate increase while the container is on the terminal, the entire storage period will be calculated using the increased storage rate.

Note 16: If the Authority implements any refrigerated services-related rate increase while the container is on the terminal, the increased rate will apply to the container for the entire period that electrical power was provided.
