Charleston, SC, container traffic rises 7.7pc


The US Port of Charleston' s container throughput increased by 7.7 per cent in April compared to the same month the previous year to 123,439 TEU.
According to a statement issued by the South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA), the result marked the strongest April seen at the port since 2008.
Containerised traffic for the 10 months comprising the fiscal year to date (June through April) was up 2.7 per cent from the same period last year, while container volume for the calendar year to date (January through April) increased 7.3 per cent over 2011 levels.
The SCPA's non-container cargo continued its upwards trend, with breakbulk tonnage in the Port of Charleston up 57 per cent in April year on year and up nearly 24 per cent in the fiscal year to date.
Two new, weekly container services connecting the Port of Charleston to markets in Asia in June, including the first direct Vietnam call for the port, will help boost container volumes further, the Shipping Gazette informs.
