    South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) reported nine percent container volume growth in 2017 with a record-setting 2.2 million TEUs handled during the year.

    The port’s total container volume in 2017 surpassed the previous record of 2 million TEUs achieved in 2016.

    In addition, the port moved 182,884 TEUs last month, an increase of 11.2 percent over December 2016 and the highest December in SCPA history.

    “Global container trade growth was the strongest it has been since 2010, mirroring surprising strength in the global economy,” Jim Newsome, SCPA President and CEO, said.

    “We expect to see continued strength, albeit slightly more modest, into 2018 with growth in the emerging market economies as a key factor in sustaining this positive outlook,” Newsome added.

    As measured by the total number of boxes handled, SCPA moved a total of 1.2 million pier containers in 2017.

    In non-containerized cargo, SCPA’s Charleston breakbulk facilities handled a total of 783,363 tons during the year. Nearly 235,000 finished vehicles moved across the dock of the Columbus Street Terminal in 2017.

    In addition to record-breaking volumes, 2017 was a year marked by significant advancement of key SCPA projects. Construction of the Leatherman Terminal continued, representing major growth capacity for the port’s container business when Phase One opens in 2020.

    During the year, SCPA celebrated the groundbreaking of Inland Port Dillon, which will open in April, and a new headquarters building, scheduled to open in December.

    The port also made progress on the final phase of the Wando Terminal Wharf Strengthening Project, which will be completed this spring in conjunction with the delivery of two new 155′ ship-to-shore cranes.

    The Charleston Harbor Deepening Project to 52 feet achieved several milestones in 2017, having been named one of six “new starts” and receiving USD 17.5 million in construction funding in the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Fiscal Year 17 Work Plan. The USACE awarded the first two construction contracts of USD 47 million and USD 213 million to deepen the Entrance Channel in preparation for dredging to begin next month. By the end of 2020, SCPA will be able to handle the biggest ships calling the East Coast.

    SCPA owns and operates public seaport facilities in Charleston, Dillon, Georgetown and Greer.

    The Port of Los Angeles moved more cargo in 2017 than in any time in the port’s 110-year history, racking up 9.3 million TEUs.

    This represents a 5.5 percent increase over 2016’s record-breaking year when the port handled 8.8 million TEUs.

    As informed, it is the most cargo moved annually by a Western Hemisphere port.

    “2017 was a year beyond expectations but it was not by chance. Our growth is a direct result of a concerted, multi-year effort by the port and its many partners to maximize efficiency throughout the supply chain,” Gene Seroka, Port of Los Angeles Executive Director, commented.

    “We are extremely proud of the role our workforce has played in achieving this cargo milestone, and in keeping the San Pedro Bay port complex the number one trade gateway in the US,” Mark Mendoza, President of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union 13, noted.

    Supply chain efficiencies implemented by the port in 2017 included technology upgrades, like the new “Port Optimizer” digital information portal. The optimizer aggregates key cargo data online to facilitate better cargo tracking, projections, and productivity.

    During the previous year, infrastructure upgrades were completed at TraPac Container Terminal and Yusen Terminals. They continue to boost the port’s ability to service increasingly larger ships, as well as to more efficiently facilitate cargo movement throughout its terminals, the Port of Los Angeles said in a statement.

    2017 was the busiest year in the Port of Oakland’s 90-year history having achieved a new record of 2.42 million 20-foot handled containers, the port said.

    That broke the previous record of 2.39 million containers set in 2014.

    The port added it broke two more records in 2017 with 919,523 loaded import containers and 1.85 million combined imports and exports.

    The record performance was ascribed to import growth, which marked a 4 percent rise in 2017 over 2016 totals.

    December imports were up 6.4 percent over the same month in 2016.

    The port attributed the import rally to a strong U.S. economy and increasing consumer demand for retail products.

    “Our record-setting 2017 has set the stage for the future,” said Port of Oakland Maritime Director John Driscoll.  “With new development projects already underway, we expect to increase our capacity and drive greater volume.”

    The record figures are being reported in the wake of the port’s strategic infrastructural investments which are expected to see larger ships calling at the port to become “the new normal“.

    Bigger ships of up to 18,000 TEU are expected to drive Oakland’s anticipated cargo increase over the coming years.

    Namely, the Californian port anticipates a five-year run of record cargo volume beginning in 2018, as revealed in a Strategic Maritime Roadmap released in August 2017.

    By 2022, the port expects to handle the equivalent of 2.6 million 20-foot containers annually. The number would represent 8 percent more volume than the port has ever processed in a single year.

    In June 2017, Driscoll said that the port envisions to see over USD 600 million in investment in infrastructural projects aimed at bolstering Oakland’s status as a major trade hub.

    These have included a terminal upgrade, a new operating system at Everport marine terminal, along with USD 100-million rail yard completed in 2016.

    In addition, the port has launched work on raising ship-to-shore cranes at its Oakland International Container Terminal’s (OICT),  doubling the size of the TraPac marine terminal, constructing a 287,000-square foot Cool Port for refrigerated cargo transport and developing the first 27 acres of a Seaport Logistics Complex.

    The port said it expects Cool Port to open late summer, while the work on its Seaport Logistics Complex could begin by spring.

    Manchester Airports Group (MAG) has had a strong year with substantial cargo growth at all three of its hubs in 2017.

    Of its three airports, East Midlands Airport saw the strongest growth, rising 8.6 per cent to 353,017 tonnes, which was also the highest figure in the group.

    London Stansted had the second highest figure, handling 261,243 tonnes, a year-on-year increase of 2.8 per cent, the lowest of the group.

    Manchester Airport grew by eight per cent, handling 122,358 tonnes.

    In December, East Midlands handled 31,535 tonnes, Stansted processed 21,467 tonnes and Manchester was at 10,087 tonnes.

    Manchester has been helped by its expanding long-haul network with new routes to Beijing, Singapore, Hong Kong, San Francisco and Houston, while Stansted has a new service to Dubai, operated by Emirates to look forward to when it launches in June 2018.

    The Dubai flight will provide onward connections to destinations including Shanghai, Sydney and Hong Kong.

    Setting an all-time record, Liege Airport, one of the leading cargo airports in Belgium handled 717,000 tonnes of goods during 2017, registering a 8.5 percent growth compared to 2016.

    According to sources, global cargo business witnessed overall growth, driven by strong economic performances in Europe and emergence of new e-commerce opportunities.

    Every Liege-based operator has registered growth. Additionally, two new airlines-Air China Cargo and Air Bridge Cargo recently joined Liege Airport.

    "It was a record year as we had never achieved such a tonnage since Liege Airport came into being in 1990. This confirms the relevance of our strategy of support for full cargo companies," said Luc Partoune, CEO of Liege Airport.

    Similarly, Liege Airport fast-tracked its investment programme to support the growth of logistics companies and handlers.

    "In next couple of weeks, a 6,000 m2 cargo hall will be in operation, besides over 20,000 m2 will be built along with four new parking stands for large aircraft. The overall investment is expected to the tune of 50 million euros," said Partoune.

    The real estate activity is being handled by its subsidiary-Liege Airport Business Park. It also registered 97 percent occupancy rate for office space and 100 percent for warehouses.

    An architecture competition is expected to be announced shortly to design an office development in the immediate proximity of the passenger terminal.

    In fact during 2017, Liege Airport registered 192,000 passengers and the number of flights stood at 37,199. Its net income is stands at about 2.4 million euros.
