Port of Los Angeles comes in shy of 10 million TEU

The Port of Los Angeles has seen a significant increase in container traffic in 2022, moving 9.9 million TEU, the second highest in the port’s history.

This achievement solidifies the port’s position as the busiest container port in the nation for the 23rd time in a row.

The port fell short of setting another yearly record, as imports into the US eased toward year-end 2022 in addition to cargo being shifted away from West Coast ports due to prolonged labour negotiations.

In his recent State of the Port address, Port of Los Angeles Executive Director, Gene Seroka, outlined the port’s priorities for 2023, which include a focus on economic growth, job creation, and improving the quality of life for surrounding communities.

Seroka highlighted the port’s efforts to lead technology innovation in the maritime industry, including the launch of new features to its Port Optimizer™ digital tracking portal.

“Data infrastructure gives us tremendous insight into supply chain issues, trends and process improvement opportunities which were simply not available before,” Seroka said.

“These new tools will add to the stability and growth of America’s global trade.”

Additionally, the port plans to continue its commitment to sustainable and zero-emission business operations in 2023.

This includes continued planning for new Green Shipping Corridors with the ports of Shanghai and Singapore to reduce emissions along these critical trade routes, as well as promoting more clean fuel usage, new ship technologies, and best practices – including development and deployment of zero-emission cargo-handling equipment and more clean trucks.

In November 2022, the two-year stretch of a containership backup at the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach officially ended.
