Import volume at the largest U.S. containerized retail cargo handling container ports is expected to grow 1.7 percent in August from a year ago, reversing the negative trend of the past five months, according to the monthly Global Port Tracker report released August 13 by the National Retail Federation and Hackett Associates. New cargoes provide grounds for optimism for the St. Lawrence Seaway, with several ports - including the Port of Monroe, Port of Cleveland, Port of Milwaukee, Port of Duluth-Superior and Port of Quebec - handling heavy lifts for Great Lakes region projects. The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Foreign Trade Zones Board has approved an application by the Port of South Louisiana (PSL) for the expansion of Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) 124.
