September Container Volumes Slide at Port of Los Angeles

The Port of Los Angeles handled 5.8% less containers in September 2015 compared to the same month a year earlier.

The port handled a total of 730,306 TEUs in September 2015, saying that while volumes were robust, they did not match 775,132 TEUs handled last September, which was among the strongest in the port’s history.

“While we fell short of last September’s exceptional volume of 775,000 TEUs, I’m encouraged by the productivity our terminals and supply chain partners have demonstrated over the past six months,” said Port of Los Angeles Director Gene Seroka.

“We are experiencing a consistent pattern of larger ships and more efficient cargo conveyance at volumes that are market leading.”

Imports decreased 9.4 percent to 383,963 TEUs in September 2015. Exports declined 17.5 percent to 124,286 TEUs.

For the first nine months of 2015, overall volumes (6,119,623 TEUs) are down 2.9 percent compared to the same period in 2014.
