The Port of Los Angeles moved a total of 8,160,457 Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs) in 2015, a decrease of 2.1 percent compared to 2014.

“I’m pleased that the Port of Los Angeles has surpassed the 8-million TEU threshold for the fifth time in our history,” said Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka. “Despite the soft start to the year, our terminals, labor force and supply chain stakeholders rebounded strongly. With bigger ships and the ongoing work to increase supply chain efficiencies, we look forward to building on this momentum in 2016.”

In December 2015, total cargo volumes were 626,276 TEUs, a decrease of 4.9 percent compared to the same period last year.  December 2015 imports dropped 4.5 percent to 321,407 TEUs compared to the previous year. Exports fell 13.7 percent to 131,239 TEUs in December. A cargo terminal was offline for several weeks in December in order to install new software, which was the primary reason for the drop in December cargo.
