The Port Authority handled a record amount of cargo in 2015, hitting 30.5 million tons of goods passing across its docks, executive director Roger Guenther said during a Port Commission meeting Tuesday, based on preliminary numbers.
Cargo exceeded the 30.3 million ton record set in 2014. The Port Authority also handled a record number of containers – the equivalent of about 2.1 million 20-foot-long containers, Guenther said, which carry items like retail goods and raw materials.
