U.S. Container Imports Expected to Peak in August as Labor Disputes Pose Supply Chain Concerns

U.S. container imports are expected to peak in August at a little over 2 million TEUs before slowly backing off, according to the National Retail Federation‘s Global Port Tracker report. This comes as retailers are closely watching labor disputes that could cause supply chain disruptions.

In May, U.S. ports saw an 8.5% increase in container imports from April, but a 19.3% decrease from the previous year, with 1.93 million TEUs handled.
