Los Angeles Posts Busiest July

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Los Angeles posted its busiest July ever last month, moving 833,568 TEUs, boasting a 4.6 percent increase over July 2017.

Los Angeles also processed 438,165 TEUs in imports, a five percent jump from the same period last year, while handling 8.4 percent more exports with 167,992 TEUs.

“With a robust economy and cargo owners moving goods ahead of expected tariffs, our terminal operators, labor force and supply chain partners seamlessly moved a record amount of cargo across our docks,” said Port Executive Director Gene Seroka. “That speaks to the efficiency, speed, reliability and service that are the hallmarks of the Port of Los Angeles.”
