2/21/2014 9:20:46 AM

THE Port of Long Beach has posted a 1.4 per cent year-on-year decline in January container throughput to 528,884 TEU while the neighbouring Port on Los Angeles enjoyed 2.5 per cent increase to 685,550 TEU.

Long Beach imports increased two per cent year on year in January to 279,415 TEU while Los Angeles imports went up 6.7 per cent to 337,428 TEU. Long Beach exports fell 3.4 per cent to 122,411 TEU while LA exports were up 1.7 per cent to 159,257 TEU.

Although January was slightly down for Long Beach, 2014 is expected to be busier than 2013, which was the third-busiest year in port history with a total of 6.73 million TEU, said the port authority statement.

"We look forward to continued progress in 2014, building on the performance of 2013. We expect to be back to peak cargo levels at the Port of Long Beach by 2015 or 2016," said Noel Hacegaba, acting deputy executive director of the Port of Long Beach.
