South Carolina sets monthly box volume, up 16pc


The South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) posted a 16 per cent a year-on-year increase in container volume to 206,541 TEU in August, its highest ever monthly throughput.
SCPA's fiscal year container volumes are up 13 per cent year on year, after moving 407,135 TEU since July 1.
"SCPA has experienced incredibly strong growth in 2018 with August marking the single best month in our history as well as the sixth consecutive record-setting month for container volumes," said SCPA president Jim Newsome.
"Fall is typically a seasonally strong time for our port, and while we look forward to continued growth through 2018, we will continue to monitor the potential for tariff negotiations to adversely impact containerised trade if prolonged or not otherwise resolved successfully."
August was also the highest month in SCPA history for pier container volume, or total boxes moved. SCPA handled 117,037 pier containers at the Wando Welch and North Charleston terminals, with 231,334 containers moved in the fiscal year to date, according to Shipping Gazette.
