North Carolina Ports Authority sees increase in container moves

Body

The North Carolina Ports Authority CEO gave his State of the Ports Address Tuesday.

Thanks to the arrival of two new shipping lines, Tom Eager said there has been a 28 percent increase in container moves at the ports. However, general cargo volumes have seen a big decrease caused by the struggling construction and auto industries.

“We want to bring in two additional liner services over the next few years. There’s some discussions, we’re moving towards that end, but that’s the objective. If we can do that we’ll be very well situated looking forward,” said Eager.

Eagar also said the North Carolina International Terminal planned that Brunswick County would also help draw new businesses to North Carolina ports. But several studies and public forums need to be completed before that can move forward.
