U.S. TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units) imports for the top 100 NVOCCs (Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier) actually increased for the month of February from January and February of 2014. The top NVOs increased by 4 percent from January and another 19 percent from February of last year. This was a surprise due to the short month of February. Import volume picked up from an unusually slow January, which was caused by a variety of issues at West Coast ports.
The top 100 NVOs were responsible for over 405,000 TEUs imported in February, 16,000 TEUs higher than January, and nearly 60,000 TEUs higher than February of 2014.
Most NVOs increased from last month. The top three were once again Expeditors International, Blue Anchor Line, and Christal Lines. Expeditors had one of the highest increases from January TEUs by over 8 percent and another 25 percent from February of 2014. Blue Anchor Line rose less than a percentage from January but over 23 percent from last February. Christal Lines increase 1.6 percent from January and another 20 percent from February of 2014.
