Port of Virginia container volume rises to all-time high of 2.6m TEU

14 February 2017 | US


The Port of Virginia saw its container throughput in 2016 hit a record 2.6 million Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit (TEU), marking the second-highest year-on-year growth rate at 4.2% in the US.

The chairman of the Virginia Port Authority's board, John Milliken, was quoted as saying in a report by The Virginian-Pilot: "We outstripped other east coast ports; we outstripped the west coast ports. We outstripped everybody in terms of our growth."

Everybody except the Port of Los Angeles, which announced that last year was the busiest on record for a western hemisphere port, with container throughput up 8.5% year on year to 8.8 million TEU.

On the east coast, the port of Charleston in South Carolina saw a year-on-year gain of 1.2%, while New York/New Jersey's volumes dipped 1.9%, and Savannah, Georgia, saw volumes decline by 2.5%.
