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).
