POLA Container Volumes Drop in June

The Port of Los Angeles has released its June 2013 cargo volumes.

June overall volumes decreased 7.2 percent compared to June 2012. The decrease was due in part to a vessel service that shifted out of the Port of Los Angeles.

 Imports dropped 7.2 percent, from 353,930 Twenty-Foot Equivalent (TEU) containers in June 2012 to 328,324 TEUs this June. Exports decreased 15 percent, from 174,418 TEUs in June 2012 to 148,203 TEUs in June 2013.

Combined, total loaded imports and exports for June decreased 9.8 percent, from 528,348 TEUs this past June to 476,528 TEUs in June 2013. Factoring in empties, which increased 1 percent year over year, overall June 2013 volumes (646,650 TEUs) dropped 7.2 percent compared to June 2012 (696,847 TEUs).
