[ June 19, 2018   //   ]

The Port of Savannah handled 3 million tons of cargo in May, an increase of 8.9% or 247,671 tons compared the same month a year ago. Total cargo crossing all terminals reached 3.22 million tons.

“Our May numbers reflect strong performances in breakbulk and containerized trade, showing growing global demand for both retail goods and manufacturing inputs,” said GPA Executive Director Griff Lynch.

Last month was GPA’s busiest May ever and the second busiest month in the Port of Savannah’s history, moving a total of 361,029 twenty-foot equivalent container units, an increase of 3.1% or 10,924 TEUs. For the fiscal year to date, the Port of Savannah has achieved an 8.3% surge in twenty-foot equivalent container units (290,422 TEUs) compared to the same period a year ago. Through May, the GPA has moved 3.8 million TEUs.
