       根据港口管理局的最新数据,长滩港码头集装箱装卸量在7月下降了4.4%之后,本月同比下降了1.9%至679543 TEU。
       8月,进口集装箱吞吐量下跌了3.6%至343029 TEU,而出口集装箱吞吐量上涨了1.9%至119546 TEU,同时,空箱数量下降了1.1%至216968 TEU。
       长滩港执行董事Mario Cordero认为,近期货运量的下跌主要是因为主导东西方集装箱贸易的联盟导致了船舶部署和港口挂靠的改变。同时他还发出预警,称中美之间不断升级的关税战在今年年初一定程度促进了货运量,但最终走势很可能与之相反。
Long Beach volumes slip for second straight month
Containerized cargo volumes at the Port of Long Beach fell for the second straight month in August when compared with the same month a year ago, as an increase in loaded outbound shipments was not enough to offset declines in volumes of loaded inbound and empty containers.
Long Beach terminals saw container handling volumes slip 1.9 percent year-over-year to 679,543 TEUs for the month after falling 4.4 percent in July, according to the latest data from the port authority.
Throughput of loaded import containers fell 3.6 percent to 343,029 TEUs in August, while loaded exports grew 1.9 percent to 119,546 TEUs and empty container volumes slipped 1.1 percent to 216,968 TEUs.
The two-month decline followed several months of consecutive year-over-year gains, bringing total throughput in the first eight months of the calendar to 5.32 million TEUs, a 9.4 percent increase from the same 2017 period.
Port of Long Beach Executive Director Mario Cordero attributed the recent decrease in volumes primarily to a shift in vessel deployment and port calls by the major east-west container carrier alliances, but also warned that the escalating tariff battle between the United States and China has helped boost volumes early in the year and could have the reverse effect going forward.
The port also noted the decline came against an August 2017 comparison, which was at the time the third-busiest month for cargo in the port’s 107-year history.
So far during the port’s 2018 fiscal year, which began Oct. 1, 2017, total volumes have grown 11.8 percent to just under 7.3 million TEUs compared with the same fiscal 2017 period, including 3.69 million TEUs of loaded inbound containers, up 10.7 percent year-over-year; 1.44 million TEUs of loaded outbound boxes, up 8.8 percent; and 2.17 million TEUs of empties, up 16 percent.
