LA, Long Beach Ports Log Record Results in First Quarter

As cargo ships continue to clutter the horizon at the San Pedro Bay, both ports notched their best first quarter on record.

Dockworkers and terminal operators at the Port of Long Beach moved 2,376,128 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) during the first three months of 2021, a 41.2% increase from the 1,682,921 TEUs they handled during the same period in 2020, and up from the 1,806,724 TEUs in the first quarter of 2019.

“Although the pandemic is receding, consumers are spending less on travel this year and turning toward online retail in unprecedented numbers to purchase exercise equipment, office furniture and home improvement items,” Executive Director Mario Cordero said in a statement.
