NRF: Retail Container Traffic to dip in November
November 8, 2011,
Washington D.C. - With most holiday season merchandise already en route to store shelves, import cargo volume at the nation's major retail container ports has started to decline, resulting in a softer year-over-year forecast for November by the National Retail Federation.
The monthly Global Port Tracker report, released today and produced by NRF and consulting firm Hackett Associates, is 1.9% below the same month last year.
Global Port Tracker covers the U.S. ports of: Long Angeles/Long Beach, Oakland, Seattle and Tacoma on the West Coast; New York/New Jersey, Hampton Roads, Charleston and Savannah on the East Coast, and Houston on the Gulf Coast.
