SC Ports reports second-busiest February in its history

South Carolina Ports (SC Ports) saw higher-than-average container traffic at the Port of Charleston in February as the state continues to attract new business.

SC Ports has processed roughly 1.8 million TEUs and 978,374 pier containers so far in the fiscal year 2023, translating to a 5% decrease from the same period last year.

Furthermore, SC Ports processed 201,418 TEUs in the last month, representing a 13% fall from the same month in the previous year.

Despite the port's container decline, last month's volumes were the second largest in port history. Because of the Lunar New Year holiday in Asia, February is typically a lighter month.

Meanwhile, SC Ports saw 15,824 cars pass through the Port of Charleston in February.

“While we are seeing economic uncertainty impact volumes, South Carolina Ports remains well-positioned as a well-run port in the booming Southeast market,” stated SC Ports president and CEO Barbara Melvin.
