Expeditors International of Washington is back as the top NVO for April of 2014. Expeditors handled over 34,600 TEUs in April and increased volume from March by 16 percent and another 14 percent from April of 2013. Blue Anchor Line was not far behind as the second-largest NVO for April. It handled over 34,000 TEUs in April and also increased from March by 8 percent. Christal Lines was the third-largest NVO in April and has grown rapidly over the last year. Christal Lines handled about 26,000 TEUs in April which was nearly triple its volume from April of last year. This might have to do with its recent merger with Phoenix International.
