Breakbulk struggles at NWSA

July 20 - The Northwest Seaport Alliance (NWSA) handled 93,975 tonnes of breakbulk cargo in June - a 36 percent decrease compared with the same period of 2015.

The alliance - which comprises the ports of Tacoma and Seattle - attributed the breakbulk decline to the strong US dollar, fuel price impacts on new projects and slowing economic growth in China.

Auto imports also declined nearly 4 percent year-on-year to 90,214 units, following last year's record volumes, said the NWSA.
