The Port of Los Angeles has released its January 2014 cargo volumes. January overall volumes increased 2.5 percent compared to January 2013. The increase is due in part to shippers moving cargo in advance of the Chinese New Year,  which this year fell on January 31.


Container imports increased 6.7 percent, from 337,428 Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs) in January 2013 to 360,037 TEUs in January 2014. Exports increased 1.7 percent, from 159,257 TEUs in January 2013 to 161,938 TEUs in January 2014.


Combined, total loaded imports and exports for January increased 5.1 percent, from 496,686 TEUs in January 2013 to 521,975 TEUs in January 2014. Factoring in empties, which decreased 5.1 percent year over year, overall January 2014 volumes (685,550 TEUs) increased 2.5 percent compared to January 2013 (669,000 TEUs).
