        奥克兰港表示六月该港集装箱进口量达到87207 TEU,创历史新高。打破了去年7月创下的84835 TEU的月记录。
 
        今年6月,奥克兰港集装箱进口量同比增加8.7%。这可能是受大旺季的影响,也有可能是因为进口商争相赶在7月中美互加关税之前纷纷下单。
 
        “零售商们早已预测到了集装箱进口将迎来一个不错的旺季,因此这个数据并不让人惊讶。”奥克兰港海事主管约翰·德里斯科尔如此说道,“但是未来的国际贸易形势仍不甚明朗,所以我们走一步看一步,仍需观望。”
 
        奥克兰港表示要预估2018年美国加征中国货物关税的影响还为时尚早。如果加征关税发生在去年的话,可能会使中国港口遭受2.25亿美元的损失。
 
        六月集装箱出口量为71894 TEU,相比于2017年6月的75460 TEU同比下降4.7%。2018年上半年集装箱吞吐量同比下降1.8%。尽管港口官员认为中国的惩罚性关税可能会影响美国的出口,尤其是途经该港的农产品出口,但其仍将主要原因归结于美元势头强劲,导致美国货物在海外价格上涨。
 
        港口方面表示,截至目前,奥克兰港2018年集装箱总吞吐量上涨2.3%。这与今年一月的一份港口预测所预估的2-3%的涨幅是一致的。

Imports peak at Port of Oakland in June
 
The Port of Oakland said containerized inbound volume reached an all-time high of 87,207 TEUs in June. That beat the previous monthly record of 84,835 containers set last July.
 
The 8.7 percent increase over June 2017 might be due to either a strong peak season or importers may have ordered aggressively June ahead of tariffs imposed this month by the United States and China.
 
“Retailers have been forecasting a good peak season for containerized imports, so June’s numbers weren’t surprising,” said Port of Oakland Maritime Director John Driscoll. “But there’s uncertainty over the international trade picture, so we’re taking a wait-and-see approach.”
 
The Port said it’s too soon to project the impact of 2018 tariff increases on cargo from China. It said the increases would have affected about $225 million of China imports had they been in place last year.
 
Containerized outbound volume in June of 71,894 TEUs was down 4.7 percent from the 75,460 recorded in June 2017. Volumes in the first half of the year are down 1.8 percent. The port attributed the decrease to a strong U.S. dollar, which makes American goods costlier overseas, although port officials also are concerned that retaliatory tariffs by China might affect U.S. exports, especially of agricultural products that flow through the port.
 
The port said that total container volume in Oakland is up 2.3 percent so far this year. That’s in line with a January port forecast calling for 2 percent to 3 percent growth in 2018.
