Port of Tacoma container traffic rebounds in March

For the first time since November, monthly container traffic volumes at the Port of Tacoma surpassed those in the same month in the prior year in March, the port reported.

Container numbers improved by 8.5 percent last month over March 2013. The port handled 185,415 container units last month, according to port statisticians.

That increase wasn’t quite enough to push the port’s container traffic into positive territory for 2014. For the year through the first quarter container traffic lagged by 0.3 percent.
