Port's Container Volume Down 16%

Thursday, May 21, 2009

According to a May 20 report from The Post and Courier, a recent uptick in a few categories of exports was not enough to offset falling demand for most other goods that come through the Port of Charleston, the latest figures show. The State Ports Authority said at a board meeting on May 19 that the number of containers that crossed its piers during the first 10 months of its fiscal year was down by about 127,000, or 16 percent, as of April 30.
