LA Port Export Volume Highest Ever for November

The Port of Los Angeles released container statistics today for November, and one of the highlights of the report is that the number of loaded outbound containers (exports) in November at 170,319 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalents) was the third highest monthly total on record, the highest monthly volume since August 2008, and the highest-ever export container count for the month of November in history.  Compared to the pre-recession level of 145,227 TEUs in November 2007, export volume this year was 17.3% higher for the same month.

Overall shipping for the month of November at the Los Angeles port (666,970 TEUs) was 15% above last year's level, and year-to-date shipping volume has improved by 16.7% from 2009.
