It looks like the hustle and bustle of holiday imports is over in November. The top 100 NVOCCs (Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier) for the month declined in TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) imports from October by 10.9 percent. This is fairly consistent with total U.S. imports, which dropped from last month by 14 percent. Although, compared with imports from November of 2013, the top NVOs are actually 9.6 percent higher this year.
The decline in U.S. imports for November caused 81 percent of the top 100 NVOs to drop in TEUs from October. The few NVOs that grew from last month include Interglobo North America, with an 11 percent increase, and Pyramid Lines, with a slight 0.5 percent increase.
The top three NVOs for November are Expeditors International, Blue Anchor Line, and Christal Lines. Expeditors processed over 33,000 TEUs and decreased in imports from last month by 9.4 percent.
