704,398 TEUs leads Los Angeles to busiest January in port history 
 
The Port of Los Angeles handled 704,398 Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs) in January 2016, an increase of 33 percent compared to January 2015, making for the busiest January in the port’s 109-year history.
 
"Record January volumes is a very encouraging way to start 2016, particularly after the slow start that West Coast ports experienced last year," said Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka. “As cargo owners replenish their inventories after the holiday season, our terminals and supply chain partners continue to demonstrate progress in moving larger container volumes per ship call, and we are grateful for the work they’ve done in recent months to increase supply chain efficiencies and optimization.”
 
January 2016 imports surged 41.6 percent to 367,208 TEUs compared to the previous year. Exports increased 1.5 percent to 126,240 TEUs in January. Total loaded imports of 493,449 TEUs increased 28.6 percent compared to the previous year. Empty containers increased 44 percent to 210,949 TEUs. Combined, January overall volumes were 704,398 TEUs, a 33 percent increase compared to last year.
