Container Traffic Increases At Wilmington Port

By Staff Reports, posted Aug 15, 2014

The Port of Wilmington saw an uptick in container traffic last month, officials reported Friday.

Container volume at the Wilmington port in July, which was the start of the new fiscal year, was 26 percent more than a year earlier, according to a news release from the N.C. State Ports Authority.

“The growth was fueled by a wider scope of port calls in the Ports’ Asian service lane, expanded service offerings in the Latin American trade lane, and increased tonnage in the European trade services lane,” the release stated.

“We are aggressively working to grow the business and our container volumes are a result of our commitment to meeting our customer demands for increased service offerings," Ports Authority CEO Paul Cozza said in the release. "I am looking forward to a strong year.”
