       与去年同期相比,长滩港8月份的集装箱货运量连续第二个月下跌,这是因为船运出口货物量的增长不足以抵消船运进口货物量和空箱数量的下降。
 
       根据港口管理局的最新数据,长滩港码头集装箱装卸量在7月下降了4.4%之后,本月同比下降了1.9%至679543 TEU。
 
       8月,进口集装箱吞吐量下跌了3.6%至343029 TEU,而出口集装箱吞吐量上涨了1.9%至119546 TEU,同时,空箱数量下降了1.1%至216968 TEU。
 
       长滩港货运量连续几个月的同比增长之后是两个月的连续下跌,这使得总吞吐量在今年头八个月达到了532万TEU,与2017年同期相比增长了9.4%。
 
       长滩港执行董事Mario Cordero认为,近期货运量的下跌主要是因为主导东西方集装箱贸易的联盟导致了船舶部署和港口挂靠的改变。同时他还发出预警,称中美之间不断升级的关税战在今年年初一定程度促进了货运量,但最终走势很可能与之相反。
 
       该港还指出,这次(货运量的)下跌与2017年八月的情况完全相反,去年该月是港口107年以来第三个货物运输最繁忙的时期。
 
       长滩港2018财政年度自2017年10月1日开始,期间总货运量较2017财政年度同比增长了10.8%,不到730万TEU。其中,集装箱进口量为369万TEU,较去年同期上涨了10.7%;集装箱出口量为144万TEU,上涨了8.8%;空箱量为217万TEU,上涨了16%。

Long Beach volumes slip for second straight month
 
Containerized cargo volumes at the Port of Long Beach fell for the second straight month in August when compared with the same month a year ago, as an increase in loaded outbound shipments was not enough to offset declines in volumes of loaded inbound and empty containers.
 
Long Beach terminals saw container handling volumes slip 1.9 percent year-over-year to 679,543 TEUs for the month after falling 4.4 percent in July, according to the latest data from the port authority.
 
Throughput of loaded import containers fell 3.6 percent to 343,029 TEUs in August, while loaded exports grew 1.9 percent to 119,546 TEUs and empty container volumes slipped 1.1 percent to 216,968 TEUs.
The two-month decline followed several months of consecutive year-over-year gains, bringing total throughput in the first eight months of the calendar to 5.32 million TEUs, a 9.4 percent increase from the same 2017 period.
 
Port of Long Beach Executive Director Mario Cordero attributed the recent decrease in volumes primarily to a shift in vessel deployment and port calls by the major east-west container carrier alliances, but also warned that the escalating tariff battle between the United States and China has helped boost volumes early in the year and could have the reverse effect going forward.
 
The port also noted the decline came against an August 2017 comparison, which was at the time the third-busiest month for cargo in the port’s 107-year history.
 
So far during the port’s 2018 fiscal year, which began Oct. 1, 2017, total volumes have grown 11.8 percent to just under 7.3 million TEUs compared with the same fiscal 2017 period, including 3.69 million TEUs of loaded inbound containers, up 10.7 percent year-over-year; 1.44 million TEUs of loaded outbound boxes, up 8.8 percent; and 2.17 million TEUs of empties, up 16 percent.
