On June 22, Evergreen Line’s boxship Ever Sigma discharged the nine millionth TEU to pass through the Port of Los Angeles in the span of twelve months. As informed, it’s the first time any Western Hemisphere port handled that level of volume annually.

“Nine million TEUs is a major milestone for Los Angeles, and it’s only fitting that Evergreen Line … discharged the box that set this new Western Hemisphere record,” Gene Seroka, Port Executive Director, said.

“As a Port of Los Angeles tenant and partner for more than 50 years, Evergreen is proud to be the shipping line that delivered the nine millionth TEU during this twelve-month period,” Roy Amalfitano, Vice Chairman of Evergreen Shipping Agency (America) Corporation, commented.

The twelve-month period for this new record corresponds with the port’s July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017 fiscal year, and the port is on track to end the 2017 calendar year exceeding last year’s record volumes.

In 2006, Los Angeles was the first port to surpass an annual throughput of eight million TEUs, a decade-long record that was broken with CY 2016 volumes of 8.8 million, the port said.
