Port of Los Angeles surpasses 5.4 million TEU in 2022 H1

The Port of Los Angeles (POLA) moved 876,611 TEU in June and by mid-2022 has handled more than 5.4 million TEU, matching last year's record pace.

“Halfway through the year, we’ve been able to reduce the number of vessels waiting to berth by 75%, allowing dock workers to efficiently process more vessels,” said Port of Los Angeles executive director, Gene Seroka.

“We’re already beginning to handle back-to-school, fall fashion and year-end holiday goods. Despite inflation and higher-than-usual inventory, we expect cargo volume to remain robust in the second half of the year,” he added.

Loading imports in June 2022 reached 444,680 TEU, translating to a 5% decrease compared to the previous year's same month, while loaded exports totalled 93,890 TEU, down 2.3% compared to June 2021. At the same time, empty containers reached 338,041 TEU, which corresponds to an increase of 8.1% compared to June 2021.
