title   NWSA September imports, exports rise

Full imports for the month of September improved 4 percent compared to
the same month last year, while full exports grew 6 percent. Year to
date 2016, full imports are up 3 percent to 1,017,199 TEUs (20-foot
equivalent units) and full exports increased 12 percent to 713,579

Total container volumes are essentially flat year-to-date through
September, down less than one percent to 2,657,481 TEUs. Weak empty and
domestic volumes continue to drag down overall container volume growth.
Domestic volumes are down 3 percent year to date as Alaska struggles
with a decrease in oil- and gas-related project activity due to low
commodity prices.
