SCPA moved 179,856 TEU in September, an all-time record for the month, and it helped push Q1 FY 2017-18 to 539,995 TEU, a nearly 4% year-over-year increase.

"The Port continues to see year-over-year growth, and our first quarter results, including record September container volumes, reflect a very positive start to our 2018 fiscal year," said SCPA president and CEO Jim Newsome.

As measured by the total number of boxes loaded on and off vessels at SCPA docks, Charleston handled 101,902 pier containers in September. The Port achieved 4.2 fiscal year-to-date pier container growth over last year, with 305,648 boxes handled during July through September.

The breakbulk business segment, which includes non-containerised cargo such as finished vehicles, wire rod in coils and wood pulp, totaled 65,269 tons in September and 153,304 tons fiscal year to date.

Inland Port Greer handled 10,648 rail moves in September. With 30,401 moves handled during the first quarter, the facility's volumes since July are nearly 16 percent higher than the same period last year.
