10/2/2013 8:40:25 AM

   The Georgia Ports Authority said it handled 2.5 million tons of cargo in August, 8.5 percent more than in August 2012.

   Container volume amounted to 280,873 TEU, 3.8 percent more than in August 2012.

   “We are extremely pleased by the strength of our August performance,” said Curtis Foltz, the authority's executive director. “Although we set new records in many categories during August, challenges remain in many of the global markets important to future trade volumes.”

   Intermodal rail moves are up 3 percent over the same month in the previous year, and Foltz said "the record intermodal volumes are supported by economic and environmental benefits of rail transport.
