The Port of Long Beach reported the second busiest month in its history, handling more than 890,000 TEU in May. Still, this figure represents a 1.8% decline from May 2021, which remains the port's busiest month in its 111-year history.
In particular, imports reached 436,977 TEU and exports were 118,234 TEU, while empty containers moved through the Port were 335,778 TEU.
Port of Long Beach executive director, Mario Cordero: “We are moving an extraordinary amount of cargo and continue to work with industry partners to quickly move imports and empties off the docks.” Cordero also pointed out that POLB is “ready for the traditional summertime surge to coincide with China’s recovery from a lengthy lockdown.”
The Californian port has moved 4,172,366 TEU in the first five months of 2022, which translates to an increase of 3.5% from the same period in 2021.
