South Carolina Ports Authority reports its fiscal year-to-date volumes are nearly 2 percent higher last year, with record-breaking container volumes handled in April.

SCPA has moved 1.8 million TEUs since July, compared to 1.78 million during the same period last fiscal year. The Port achieved a record April, with 196,439 TEUs handled during the month.

SCPA's strong container volume was also reflected in April volumes at Inland Port Greer. The facility handled 9,577 rail moves last month for a fiscal year-to-date total of 96,937 lifts.

In non-containerized cargo, the Port handled 51,426 pier tons in April. Since the fiscal year began in July, 608,829 tons of breakbulk cargo have moved across the docks in Charleston.
