This is an increase of 27 per cent from pre-pandemic 2019 annual totals.
Throughout the year, the port managed a 26-month-long streak of monthly record cargo high activity.
The port also became the nation’s busiest container port during the peak months of the holiday shipping season.
In December, the port handled 613,011 TEU, which was an increase of 3.6 per cent compared to December 2019.
However, this reflected a 15.2 per cent decrease from November 2022, when the seaport handled 723,069 TEU as production overseas declined in response to slower demand.
