Los Angeles - Empty-In Appointments / Empty Return Information on Website

REVISED Start date  - Mandatory requirement to terminate empties 

Starting February 16th (Friday), TraPac LAX will be implementing the appointment requirement for the empty-in move only

Please allow ample time after appointment has been made for the transmission to go back and forth between eModal and TraPac , especially when making same day appointments

In anticipation of this, we are now posting the empty return information for 3 shifts - today's day shift, tonight's night shift, and then early afternoon we will post tomorrow's day shift.  Please watch dates carefully on the empty return section of the website.  This should make it easier for you to know what type/size/line of containers we will be accepting so you can make those appointments starting Feb 16th.


these are the requirement to make the empty-in appointment on eModal system

  1. Select for “drop empty”
  2. Type container number (eModal does not have the fleet file, and accept any container number) – please make sure the truckers are using prefix and 7 digit numbers
  3. appointment date/time

 We understand the trucking community is accustomed to the eModal empty-in appointment system
