Vic LaRosa, president of the Southern California harbor trucking company TTSI, said BCOs are stepping up and paying the delivery fees. “I gotta give them credit,� he said.

However, a residual problem has emerged because once the container is emptied, it is still sitting on a chassis, which not only keeps the equipment out of service, but the chassis also begins to incur late return fees, known as per diem, if it is not returned to the chassis-leasing companies’ pool of pools before free time expires. LaRosa said that if the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach can quickly designate parcels of land in the harbor for empty container storage, truckers can drop the Hanjin empties at those yards and return the bare chassis to the leasing companies before free time expires.


TTSI Official: Most Drayage Drivers Wish to Remain Independent | TTSI - Total Transportation Services Inc.

Vic LaRosa, president of TTSI, estimated that 80 percent of the drivers he deals with at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach prefer to own and operate their trucks rather than to be direct employees of a drayage company.

...
As an indication that drivers at most ports prefer to be independent businesspersons, LaRosa told a conference of the Transportation Lawyers Association Friday in Los Angeles that in many cities hundreds of employee driver positions go unfilled.
Although the employee driver model is seen infrequently at seaports, many retailers, grocery store chains and manufacturers have employee drivers who drive company-owned trucks. Owner-operators in those port cities could apply for those positions, but most prefer to remain independent, LaRosa said.
In fact, there is a nationwide driving shortage in many areas of trucking, including over-the-road trucking where the employee driver model is more common, he said.
Ever since trucking deregulation, most harbor drayage companies have found that the costs associated with unionized, employee drivers make it impossible to compete in the cutthroat harbor trucking industry. While increased wages are a factor, loss of productivity is the main obstacle to having employee drivers, LaRosa said.
TTSI for a period attempted to operate some trucks with employee drivers provided by temp agencies, but the company ended up losing $1 million because of a drop in productivity, he said.

...
TTSI President Vic La Rosa announced his company's commitment to create a "totally green truck fleet" over the next year to support major shippers, including Target, the second largest goods importer to the United States. La Rosa explained that funding grants from the San Pedro Bay Ports and the South Coast Air Quality Management District will help offset the cost of the new trucks.
