Attention Trucking Community

3.) Obey all posted stop signs and stop bars.

4.) Stop before entering roadability and do not leave prior to being cleared.

5.) Wear proper P.P.E. (hi-visibility vests, gloves, and closed toed shoes).

6.) Containers need to be locked down at roadability by a mechanic.

T.W.I.C Cards:

No truck drivers will be allowed into Pierce County Terminal without a valid Transportation Workers Identification Credential.  For further information please refer to: https://www.tsa.gov/for-industry/twic


Roadability Rules:

All chassis, except for those chassis owned by an independent truck driver or owned by an independent non PMA affiliated trucking company and identified and proven as such, shall go through roadability.

If a driver with a long term leased chassis chooses to go through roadability and fails any part of the 8 part inspections, they may have mechanics make the necessary repairs or the container shall be removed and the driver may exit the facility.




Gensets will only be released on bookings noted to require a genset. If a booking does not require "genset" then one will NOT be dispatched. To have a booking updated to include a genset please contact Evergreen.


O.C.R. Readers:

Please proceed through the OCR readers at the slowest rate possible when entering and exiting the facility. The slower rate of speed allows the readers to accurately photograph all of the information necessary to auto-print a ticket at the out-gate, which in turn does not require the driver to talk to a clerk again on the way out.


Pre-Mounted Containers:

Pre-mounted imports can be picked up from the wheeled area.


Empty Pile Process:

PCT's three empty pile pedestals are no longer open air speakers. In order for the empty pile clerk to communicate with driver, it requires for the driver to pick up the newly installed handset.


Transfer Zone Process:

Once driver has parked in a transfer zone lane , exit the vehicle and scan the ticket. Scan the ticket again if conducting a dry dual transaction (including empties). Driver is to remain in booth until successfully loaded.
