Domestic container volumes in August decreased 3.5% over August 2018. Despite the dip, Alaska’s and Hawaii’s year-to-date volumes were both up 6.1% and 3.3%, respectively.
In August, the NWSA began accepting proposals for cargo operations at Terminal 46, a 50-acre deep-water marine facility in Seattle. The successful proposal will align with and support our goal of growing cargo volumes and creating family-wage jobs in the Puget Sound region while diversifying the gateway’s overall cargo portfolio.
Other cargo highlights:
- Breakbulk cargo volumes were up 13.6% year to date to 180,841 metric tons.
- NWSA auto volumes year to date were 107,220 units, up 23.1%.
