New shipping lines boost Tacoma's July volumes


Container volumes through the Port jumped 20 percent compared to the same month last year, boosted by the addition of new shipping lines and services, as well as continued strong volumes from established customers.
The Grand Alliance began calling Tacoma's Washington United Terminals July 2. The consortium includes three of the world's largest shipping lines, Hapag-Lloyd (based in Germany), Orient Overseas Container Line (Hong Kong) and NYK Line (Japan), and associated carrier ZIM Integrated Shipping (Israel).
The Port handled 146,010 TEUs (20-foot equivalent units) year to date through July, accounting for an overall 4 percent improvement. Imports and exports showed continued gains year to date, with full containerized imports rising nearly 16 percent and exports jumping 5 percent.
