Port Everglades cargo volumes fell 14% YoY to 79,641 TEUs in August, reflecting a sixth-consecutive month of declining volumes.
"In general, the bump in volumes can be attributed to Port Everglades’ cargo traffic returning to pre-Covid levels,” CEO and Port Director Jonathan Daniels told Supply Chain Dive. “With the post-COVID surge in our rearview mirror, the port anticipates more normal volume levels on the horizon.”
At the same time last year, container volumes were higher at a total of 92,383 TEUs. Compared to 2019 levels, cargo shipments at the East Coast port fell by 9% this August.
