In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Zepol's Data Shows 2012 Imports Increase 1.2% From 2011
U.S. Cargo Ship Imports Have Shown a Moderate Increase for the Third Consecutive Year in 2012

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 01/10/13 -- Zepol Corporation, the leading trade intelligence company, reports that U.S. vessel imports have risen a slight 1.2% in 2012. This was a total of over 17.6 million TEUs (twenty-foot-containers) imported, or roughly 200,000 more containers than 2011. Slow and steady growth seems to be the consistent pattern for the year as import volume still has not returned to 2007 or 2008 levels. Zepol has seen a large spike from 2009 to 2010 and then a plateau-like trend for the past three years, although 2012 was an especially unique year for U.S. imports.

"In the past 12 months there have been strikes at the ports, hurricanes, and shifts in manufacturing. Not to mention that in a post-recession economy, U.S. companies are running their businesses much more conservatively," says U.S. trade expert and CEO of Zepol Paul Rasmussen. "It's no wonder that 2012 imports were less than dramatic and certainly not back to the massive consumption seen in 2007."

A Closer Look at U.S. Imports for 2012:

1. What countries does the United States import the most from?- U.S. imports from Asia increased 0.2% from 2011 but it's nowhere near the increase seen from Europe which rose 6.4% in 2012. China, the leading exporter to the United States, decreased in TEU exports for the second consecutive year by 0.4%. Although South Korea, the second largest exporting country, increased 1.2%. Japan and Germany, the third and fourth largest exporting countries to the United States, also had some significant growth in 2012, rising by 2.2% and 8.7%, respectively.
2. What were the top U.S. ports in 2012?- The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are the busiest ports in the country and both have posted slight decreases from 2011 by 0.7% and 2.3%. On the other hand, the Port of Newark/New York, the nation's third largest port, increased in 2012 by 1.6%. Notable increases in traffic were also seen from the Port of Norfolk, Virginia by 10.3% and the Port of Charleston, South Carolina by 7.4%.
3. Which carriers brought in the most goods?- As for the ships that carry all these goods to the United States, Maersk Line was the top carrier again for 2012 and increased in TEUs from 2011 by 7.9%. Mediterranean Shipping Company was the second largest carrier in 2012 and rose a slight 0.6% from 2011. APL Co. ranked third and had a solid increase in TEU imports by 5.1%.
