Highs and lows for the Port of Tacoma

November 27 - At the Port of Tacoma, breakbulk cargo volumes were down 22.7 percent through October, compared with the same period last year.

The decline, however, was described as "deceiving" by the Port of Tacoma because the gateway recorded record breaking breakbulk volumes during 2012.

Total container volumes were up 12.9 percent, with an 18.1 percent rise in international containers, compared with a 0.8 percent drop in domestic containers.

Total tonnage was also down from last year, with a 1.8 percent drop, while intermodal lifts increased by 14 percent from 2012.

Overall vessel calls at the port reached a total of 1,066 - an 18 percent increase on the 897 calls reported in the same period of last year.
