In the event the Authority deems it necessary to extend working hours or working days, holidays included, to maintain terminal efficiency and manage container throughput volumes, all ocean carriers calling the Authority’s facilities will be required to participate. Participation in the extended field and gate hours/days of operation requires ocean carriers to absorb the overtime charges assessed by the Authority, as well as the charges for services provided by the terminal’s interchange gate operator.

Intermodal rail services may be provided, at the Authority’s option, on a twenty-four hour/ seven day (24/7) weekly basis. If the Authority chooses to provide said service, ocean carriers are required to participate and absorb the overtime charges assessed by the Authority.
