Port of LA reports busiest year ever

The nation’s largest container port handled 764,777 TEUs in June and 9.7 million TEUs in the last fiscal year.

 

   The Port of Los Angeles moved 764,777 TEUs of containerized cargo in June, the busiest June in the port’s 112-year history. The month marked the end of fiscal year 2018-19, during which the port moved 9,688,252 TEUs, a 5.7% improvement over the previous fiscal year.
   
Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka said the just-ended fiscal year was the busiest 12-month period in the port’s history.
   
“With container exchange per vessel at record levels, we will continue to enhance and optimize our port complex in the coming months. Creating a universal truck reservation system, moving chassis off terminals and further refining the Port Optimizer are top priorities.”
    Port Optimizer is a digital portal to connect users of the port being developed with the assistance of Wabtec (formerly GE Transportation).

   The port said June imported containers increased 3.5% to 396,307 TEUs compared to the previous year. Exports decreased 5.6% to 139,318 TEUs, while empty containers increased 19% to 229,153 TEUs. Combined, June overall volumes were 764,777 TEUs.

It’s important to understand that CBP’s role is not the policy maker. We’re the tip of the spear in terms of enforcement for exports.

The Port of Antwerp is called by 90 liner services that also sail to regions outside North Europe, according to data from BlueWater Reporting's Port Dashboard tool.
