Port of LA Cargo Volumes Drop 12% in June

(Press Release)
Thursday, July 14, 2011

The Port of Los Angeles has released its June 2011 cargo volumes. Total volumes decreased 12 percent compared to June 2010. Exports rose 5.5 percent while import volumes declined 10 percent.  For calendar year 2011, total volumes have increased 2.8 percent compared to the same six-month period in 2010.
In 2010, the peak shipping season started earlier than normal with the cargo volume surge coming on strong in June (32% over June 2009) and sustaining through July and August. Given the early and exceptional 2010 summer surge, it’s not surprising that the June 2011 volumes aren’t exceeding 2010 volumes.
