Cargo Surge Lifts Port of Long Beach to Record Month

Los Angeles - set a record last month with 796,804 industry-standard 20-foot-equivalent units (TEUs), up 16% compared with July 2016.

During the 10-month period between October 1, 2016, and July 31, 2017, the port logged 32,901 20-foot-equivalent units (TEUs), significantly more than the Florida Gulf port's full-year high mark of 30,432 TEUs set in fiscal-year 2010, port officials said in a press release.

The Port of Long Beach's previous record was set in August 2015, when workers at the complex moved almost 704,000 container units.

"These numbers are great for Long Beach and good news for the economy", Port of Long Beach Executive Director Mario Cordero, said in a statement.

Imports increased 13 percent to 417,090 TEUs, and exports rose 17 percent to 154,925 TEUs.

Ships coming in and out of the Port of Long Beach during the month of July set a record for container movements, port officials reported Friday. "We're glad to support them, and we are ready for more".

The increase is mainly attributable to Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A. switching from breakbulk shipping to containers for imports of Central American pineapple and bananas as well as to the success of World Direct's weekly shipping service that transports refrigerated produce from Mexico, according to the release.

The total container volume for the first 10 months of fiscal 2017 is up 47 percent compared with the first 10 months of the preceding fiscal year. August is forecast at 1.75 million, up 2.1% and what would be the highest monthly volume recorded since NRF began tracking imports in 2000, the federation reported.
