PORT of New York and New Jersey has for the first time in its history moved a record total of nearly 9.5 million TEU, finishing 2022 with record-high annual throughput.
This is an increase of 27 per cent from pre-pandemic 2019 annual totals, reports London's Port Technology.
Throughout the year, the port managed a 26-month-long streak of monthly record cargo high activity. The port also became the nation's busiest container port during the peak months of the holiday shipping-season.
In December, the port handled 613,011 TEU, which was an increase of 3.6 per cent compared to December 2019. However, this reflected a 15.2 per cent decrease from November 2022, when the seaport handled 723,069 TEU as production overseas declined in response to slower demand.
