    The Port of Long Beach has reported its busiest February on record amid an unseasonable surge in imports amid the ongoing pandemic-fueled cargo boom.

    The port reported Wednesday that dockworkers and terminal operators moved 771,735 twenty-foot equivalent units last month, a 43.3% uptick from the same month last year and marking the largest year-over-year increase for a single month in the Port’s 110-year history.

    It was also the first time the Port of Long Beach handled more than 700,000 TEUs in the month of February, exceeding the previous record set in February 2018 by 109,945 TEUs.

    Imports jumped 50.3% to 373,756 TEUs, while exports declined 4.9% to 119,416 TEUs. Empty containers moved through the Port climbed 69.
