Strong start for SCPA

October 20 - South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) reported year-on-year non-containerised cargo growth during the first quarter of its 2017 fiscal year.

Non-containerised cargo volumes exceeded forecasts by 11.8 percent, with the Port of Charleston handling some 217,533 tonnes of breakbulk between July and September 2016.
 
In terms of container traffic, first quarter volumes were up 1.4 percent over the same period of last year, with 520,276 teu crossing SCPA docks between July and September.
 
Rail volume at Inland Port Greer increased 18.6 percent year-on-year during the first quarter, with 26,216 moves handled in the reporting period.
 
"Loaded container volume, particularly on the import side, supported SCPA's growth for the first quarter of the fiscal year," said SCPA president and ceo Jim Newsome. "We also saw strong volumes on the breakbulk side of our business relative to plan, and Inland Port Greer achieved record volumes, providing a solid start to FY 2017."
