NWSA container volumes down in July

The Northwest Seaport Alliance (NWSA), a marine cargo operating partnership of the ports of Seattle and Tacoma, saw decreased container volumes in July. Total box volumes for the month fell by 15.9% to 260,572 TEU, with full imports declining 30.4% and full exports declining 16.8% year-over-year. Additionally, year-to-date (YTD) volumes have also declined by 5.6% to 2,067,304 TEU, with full imports and exports declining 10.3% and 23.3%, respectively.

NWSA said that lower container volumes have been driven by reduced vessel calls, resulting from vessel delays at other ports and ongoing service suspensions. Meanwhile, domestic container volumes increased 1.6% compared to YTD in July 2021, with Alaska volumes increasing 2.7% and Hawaii volumes declining 2.5%.
