RULE:  34-502
ISSUED:  September 15, 2005 EFFECTIVE:  October 01, 2005
SUBJECT:  STORAGE ON EMPTY CONTAINERS
Empty containers marshaled on Authority terminals will be assessed an excess empty container storage charge. The charge is applicable for each empty container in excess of the cumulative allowable inventory for the reporting period. This provision is applicable unless storage charges are otherwise provided for in a separate agreement between the line and the Authority.

COMPUTATION OF CUMULATIVE ALLOWABLE EMPTY CONTAINER INVENTORY FOR THE MONTHLY REPORTING PERIOD:

STEP 1
Determine the Dominant Throughput Leg for the reporting period.

(a) The Dominant Throughput Leg will be the loaded and empty containers on the export leg or the loaded containers on the import leg.

(b) Multiply the weekly average of the Dominant Throughput Leg by a factor of 1.00.

STEP 2
Multiply the number calculated in Step 1 by the number of calendar days in the monthly reporting period. If, for the reporting period, the actual cumulative inventory exceeds the allowable cumulative inventory, the difference will be assessed the charge in Rule 34-520. This will be calculated and invoiced on a monthly basis to the line or its agent.
