Modest increases for SCPA

March 18 - South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) handled 66,619 tonnes of non-containerised cargo at Charleston in February, with total fiscal year-to-date breakbulk volumes almost 31 percent ahead of plan.

Meanwhile, SCPA recorded a 4.4 percent year-to-date increase in container volume at the South Carolina ports.

In February, the ports handed 157,962 teu - a 3.3 percent increase compared with the same period in 2015.

The inland port handled 8,623 rail moves in February, its highest ever monthly volume since the facility opened in November 2013, according to the SCPA.

"February volumes showed modest increases over last year, and we expect continued moderate upticks in our volumes through the spring," said Jim Newsome, SCPA president and ceo.
