Container volume at Port of Virginia down a fraction in February


Container volume at the Port of Virginia was essentially flat in February compared to the same month a year ago, moving 220,376 TEU, a drop of 0.2 per cent from the same month in 2016, which was the best February at the port since at least 2008.
TEU volume for the first eight months of the July-June fiscal year was up 6.9 per cent from the same period a year earlier, according to The Virginia-Pilot.
"February 2016 was 29 days long versus 28, so our cargo flows remain consistent with a good balance in our export-import trade," John Reinhart, CEO and executive director of the Virginia Port Authority, said in a statement.
Loaded export units were up 4.6 per cent from a year earlier, while 13.1 per cent fewer empty units were shipped out of the port. Loaded import units fell 3 per cent, empty import units rose 91.3 per cent.
Rail and truck containers were both down slightly for the month, year over year by 1.8 per cent and 0.1 per cent, respectively.
Breakbulk tonnage - containerised cargo packed in or on bales, drums or pallets - rose 1.9 per cent.
