Port of Long Beach Breaks Cargo Flow Record for Third Consecutive Month

By: LB Post |
Posted: OCTOBER 12 2015

Add another month to the books: the Port of Long Beach (POLB) announced today that last month was its busiest September in its 104year history, stating that cargo flow has reached its pre-Recessionlevels.

The announcement comes after the Port experienced record cargo flow numbers in July and August, and just as U.S. stores begin to stock their shelves with Halloween and holiday items.

“In recent months, Long Beach has seen a robust return of oncediverted cargo,” said POLB CEO Jon Slangerup in a statement. “We greatly appreciate our shippers’ continued confidence in the Port of Long Beach."

September traffic was up by 4.1 percent from September of 2014, reaching 655,624 total twentyfoot equivalent units (TEUs) of boxed cargo. As a whole, the third quarter (July through September) bested the third quarter of 2014 by 14.8 percent—topping two million TEUs for the first time.

Cargo traffic in August increased 22.8 percent over August 2014, and it increased 18.4 percent over cargo traffic in July 2014.
