After booking record cargo volumes for the calendar 2018, South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) continued the trend at the Port of Charleston in fiscal year 2019.

SCPA handled nearly 2.4 million TEUs from July 2018 through June 2019, an 8.8% increase in annual TEU container volume.

The port authority further said it moved 200,406 TEUs across the Wando Welch and North Charleston container terminals last month.

As measured by the total number of boxes handled, SCPA moved 112,988 pier containers in June for a total of 1.36 million pier containers annually, up 9.1% compared to the previous year.

SCPA also said that a total of 213,081 cruise passengers were recorded in fiscal 2019.

“SCPA’s container business had a record-setting fiscal year and our inland ports in Greer and Dillon continue to see record growth year-over-year,” Jim Newsome, SCPA president and CEO, said.

“While we expect more modest growth in fiscal 2020, we are optimistic about the future and continue to invest in our infrastructure,” Newsome added.
