By July 20, 2023No Comments

Container volume was lower in June when measured against strong year-ago levels at ocean cargo facilities on the West and East Coasts, but some signs of improvement can be seen.

Activity at some of the nation’s ports showed a month-to-month increase now that retailers are preparing for the fall and holiday sales events.

At the Port of Los Angeles, workers moved 833,030 20-foot-equivalent units (TEUs) in June, making this the port’s strongest performance since last July, and just 5% less than last year’s record.
