In spite of worldwide supply chain challenges, the Port of Charleston wrapped up 2020 with its strongest December in history, SC Ports Authority said in a news release.
The largest increase was in vehicle volumes, which were up 29.2% from last year. The total of 21,228 vehicles moved across the docks of the Columbus Street Terminal in December set a monthly vehicle record for the ports.
To date for fiscal year 2021, the SCPA has moved 135,747 vehicles, up 17.42% year-over-year, and handled 1.2 million 20-foot equivalent container units as it continues to see months of steady growth.
Continuing the port’s steady growth, pier container volumes — cargo boxes of any size — were up 10.3% year-over-year in December with the SCPA moving 116,685. Loaded imports and exports also increased with imports rising 14.4% and exports up 8.6%. (Credit: Charleston Regional Business Journal)
