LONG BEACH, Jun 13 (FAM) – Transpacific spot rates could see further gains this summer with eastbound volumes predicted to hit record highs.

According to the latest monthly Global Port Tracker produced by the National Retail Federation and Hackett Associates, containerised box imports to the US will surge to 1.74m TEU in August. The total would be the highest monthly volume recorded since NRF began tracking imports in 2000, topping the 1.73 million TEU seen in March 2015.
