Fiscal year-to-date TEU volume at the two container terminals is up 9.7%.

 

The South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) reported its “strongest May on record,” with 204,457 TEUs handled.
    Fiscal year-to-date TEU volume is up 9.7%, with 2,192,689 TEUs handled since the port’s fiscal year began last July, SCPA said.
    As measured in pier containers, or boxes handled, SCPA moved a record 118,048 containers across the docks of its two container terminals in May, surpassing the previous May record of 113,531 pier containers in 2018. Fiscal year-to-date, pier container volume is up 10.2% with 1,251,247 boxes handled July through May, SCPA said.
    Inland Port Greer handled its highest monthly container volume in May, with 15,563 rail moves. The facility has handled 128,515 rail moves since July.

One must wonder who the Trump administration is trying to punish with its growing enthusiasm for tariffs. The tariffs are offsetting much of the savings from tax cuts, and if this continues there could be tough months ahead.

The FBX, a global container freight index measuring spot rates on major global trades, had an overall reading of $1,342 per FEU as of June 14, down 1.5% from a week prior, but up 3.4% from a year prior.
