Ports on Both Coasts See Drop-Off in Volume in November

By December 23, 2022No Comments

Port container volumes on the West Coast and East Coast declined in November, although shippers were focused on different factors.

Labor talks between the 22,000-member International Longshore and Warehouse Union and Pacific Maritime Association, which represents 29 port and storage locations, continued to weigh on volumes. On the East Coast, cargo levels were driven by concerns over the economy.

However, in the past six months, East Coast ports have seen a significant uptick in container handling, even with the slightly lower November number.
