Tracker says: Congestion low at ports
August 15, 2005,
WASHINGTON -- Inbound container traffic is up at the nation’s major ports, but last year’s congestion does not appear to have returned, according to the National Retail Federation’s new monthly Port Tracker report.
Port Tracker, produced by the data analysis firm Global Insight for NRF, was developed in response to port congestion experienced in 2004, particularly at West Coast ports, and other recent port disruptions. The report assesses conditions each month at the ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach, Oakland, Tacoma, Seattle, New York/New Jersey, Hampton Road, Charleston and Savannah to make forecasts for the following six months.
The Tracker stated that the next six months are expected to see significant increases in inbound container volumes at Oakland, Seattle and Tacoma and slow, flat growth in Los Angeles/Long Beach.
