Viking Ocean Cruises made its first ever call at a U.S. port with the October 11 docking of its Viking Star at Cruiseport Boston.  Seattle will homeport Norwegian Cruise Lines’ newest and largest ship, Norwegian Bliss, beginning in 2018. The cruise line’s announcement came as the port was predicting a record cruise season in 2017 with more than 1.0 million revenue passengers passing through its two cruise terminals.
Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), the Port of Boston’s largest customer, recently celebrated 30 years of partnership with the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) at Conley Container Terminal. TraPac, LLC, intends to nearly double the size of its marine terminal in the Port of Oakland by adding 57 acres and two more berths to the facility it leases in the port’s Outer Harbor area.
Port of New Orleans Chief Operating Officer Brandy Christian joined Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards in signing a memorandum of understanding with Cuba on October 4 pledging to expand trade opportunities between Louisiana and the Caribbean nation. The agreement also calls for joint marketing and information sharing efforts to meet those objectives. The first U.S. imports of Brazilian fresh beef were discharged October 13-14 from the Hamburg Süd vessel Monte Aconcagua at Packer Avenue Marine Terminal in the Port of Philadelphia
The Port of Long Beach reports container movements last month fell to 546,805 TEUs, a 16 percent drop from September 2015 the port says was mainly due to the Hanjin bankruptcy. The Port of Oakland’s export rally continued through September, with the TEU count up 10 percent compared to September 2015. It was the eighth increase in nine months and the first double-digit jump since February. "Notable increases" in wheat, corn, and soybean exports from the U.S. Great Lakes ports of Duluth, Milwaukee and Toledo are among the September traffic highlights reported by the U.S. Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation. "The good news," said Seaway Administrator Betty Sutton, "is that we anticipate that trend to continue for the remaining three months of the 2016 navigation season."
