Stephen Morton/Georgia Ports Authority

The Georgia Port Authority said Monday total cargo in the state’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.

“In the fourth quarter, we expect to see further growth in container traffic, both in the wake of successful labor contract negotiations and as the nation’s economic recovery continues,� 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.
