Tacoma container volume increases 2.3pc

  24.02.2012    

The Port of Tacoma's month-to month container volume increased in January, reversing a 6.6 per cent decline from December, and was up 2.3 per cent to 1.49 million TEU in full year 2011, reports the Tacoma News Tribune.
The Washington state port on Puget Sound enjoyed eight months of growth and four months of decline. It began with four months of increases followed by two months of losses, with volumes rising again in July, then falling in August. Traffic again increased in September, continued through October and November, and fell again in December, said port authorities.
The port recorded an 8.3 per cent increase in foreign containerised imports in January, but domestic traffic with Alaska and Hawaii continued its decline, this time by five per cent, the port said.
Log exports, despite warnings in the wood products business that China's appetite for timber is weakening, were up 59.6 per cent in January over the same month last year, said the port. The port handled 28,804 short tons of logs last month compared with 18,051 short tons a year before.
Breakbulk shipments, cargo too large or too awkward to fit in containers, increased 65.5 per cent in January to 10,575 short tons. Grain shipments were up 6.7 per cent. Total tonnage increased by 8.4 per cent and vessel calls, 78, last month jumped by 11.4 per cent.
