Charleston volume up 19pc in August

  17.09.2012    

Container volume in the Port of Charleston saw another double-digit increase in August, with a 19.3 per cent gain in box volume for the month compared to same period last year, the Shipping Gazette informs. 
After posting a 16 per cent jump year-over-year in July, the port handled 137,039 TEU in August, representing the strongest month for container volume since October 2008. This is also the seventh straight month of year-over-year growth in the Port of Charleston.
"We continue to focus on growing our cargo base, as reflected in strong gains in loaded exports, while we also increase service coverage in our port," said Jim Newsome, president and CEO of the South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) in a statement. "In addition to the two new services that commenced this summer, we will be welcoming the first call of the Oceania service next week."
The Bahia Grande, the first ship in Hamburg Sud and MSC's Australia and New Zealand weekly service, is scheduled to call the Wando Welch Terminal on September 21.
On the non-container side, breakbulk tonnage also was a strong performer. Overall breakbulk volume for the SCPA was up 35.5 per cent in August with 150,539 tons handled in the Port of Charleston and the Port of Georgetown.
Additionally, the Port of Charleston is the top port in the South, according to 4,000 readers of Logistics Management annual Quest for Quality awards which ranked transport providers of supply chain, including ports, 3PLs, rail carriers, trucking companies and others.
