Breakbulk up in Tacoma

March 4 - Despite a 5 percent drop in container volumes in January 2014, the Port of Tacoma posted a 15 percent rise in breakbulk cargo volumes compared with the same period in 2013.

Auto imports improved by a huge 63 percent year-to-date in January, which was due in part to a year-end inventory push from Korean auto manufacturers that coincided with the end of the fiscal year.

Grain and log exports grew by more than 6 percent, while intermodal rail volumes fell 17 percent in January as the winter weather impacted rail service to key intermodal destinations.

Full containerised imports improved by nearly 5 percent, but exports were down 1 percent, and domestic volumes dropped by 13 percent.
