The Port of Virginia handled more than 185,185 TEUs in September, putting the port’s year-to-date volume growth at 6.3 percent.

“We continue to set new records and last month was the best September we’ve ever had,” said Rodney W. Oliver, interim executive director of the Virginia Port Authority, in a written statement.

Import TEUs in September tallied 87,398, and exports were 97,787, representing year-over-year increases of 4.5 percent and 0.9 percent respectively. For the calendar year, imports rose 7.5 percent and exports increased 5.2 percent.

“In terms of rail volume, September was our fourth best month in history,” Oliver added. “The port has experienced double-digit rail growth year-over-year in 10 of the last 11 months.”

Additionally, the Virginia Inland Port posted its second-best month in terms of volume in the last three years. September volume for the inland port was at 3,374 containers, up 10.6 percent compared with the same month last year.
