The Port of Green Bay handled some 1.8 million metric tons of cargo during the 2016 shipping season.  Though short of the goal of 2.0 million tons and down 9 percent compared to 2015, "it was still a good season," declared Port Director Dean Haen.  "The numbers indicated that economy in Northeast Wisconsin remains strong."  Slowed by challenges that included a major customer declaring bankruptcy, the Port of Long Beach still moved almost 6.8 million containers in 2016, its fifth best year ever.

Mexican port cargo traffic reached a record 297.3 million metric tons in 2016, a 1.6 percent increase compared to 2015, according to preliminary data reported by the national port agency, Dirección General de Puertos. Cruise passenger and auto traffic also set records. The Northwest Seaport Alliance (NWSA) reports container throughput at its Seattle and Tacoma marine terminals totaled 3,615,752 TEUs, a 2.4 percent increase compared to 2015 and the most since 2007.
