LOS ANGELES — The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, on Friday, postponed again the implementation of a fee on companies whose import containers linger at marine terminals, with the assessment now potentially taking effect, if necessary, next Friday.

The Container Dwell Fee has been delayed numerous times due to progress in reducing the number of containers at the terminals — with the ports reporting, Friday, a 27% combined decline in aging cargo on the docks since the fee was announced.
