Container throughput at the Port of Baltimore
’s public marine terminals hit a monthly high in August of 86,149 TEUs, an increase of 24.5 percent from August 2014. Last month’s box count of 317,411 TEUs gave the Port of Savannah
its busiest September ever for container traffic and its seventh consecutive monthly record TEU volume. The Port of Long Beach
last month achieved the busiest September and quarter in its 104-year history, signaling a return to pre-recession trade levels. Port Manatee
’s container trade skyrocketed in the fiscal year ending September 30, 2015, thanks in part to a new shipping service linkage with the Mexican Port of Coatzacoalcos
. Container volumes through The Northwest Seaport Alliance
’s facilities in Seattle and Tacoma improved 5 percent third quarter 2015.
