The Georgia Port Authority said Monday total cargo in the stateâ€™s ports increased 6.9% in February over the same month last year.
The port authority said it moved 2.27 million tons of freight in February and roll-on/roll-off cargo at the Port of Brunswick improved 30% to 50,622 units.
â€œIn the fourth quarter, we expect to see further growth in container traffic, both in the wake of successful labor contract negotiations and as the nationâ€™s economic recovery continues,â€� Curtis Foltz, GPA executive director, said in a statement.
The Port of Savannah moved 242,425 industry standard 20-foot equivalent container units in February, an increase of 2.3% year-over-year, GPA said.
