The Port of Los Angeles moved 924,225 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) in November, the most containerized monthly cargo the Port has processed during its 110-year history. That activity broke the previous high mark of 877,564 TEUs set in November 2016.
Port of Los Angeles’ Gene Seroka says, “Four vessels calling in Los Angeles each discharged and loaded more than 23,000 TEUs in November, all close to October’s 24,308 TEU record set last month in Los Angeles.”
Eleven months through 2017, volumes are up 6.3%, compared to last year’s record-breaking 8.8 million TEUs. The Port of Los Angeles is on track to be the first Western Hemisphere port to exceed nine million TEUs in a calendar year.
In November, loaded imports increased 6.1% to 463,690 TEUs, compared to November 2016. Loaded exports increased 0.3% to 177,913 TEUs.
