Port of Boston sees impacts of Sino-US tariffs on container throughput

Mutual tariffs imposed by Beijing and Washington appear to be putting downward pressure on Boston’s exports to China, while failing to reduce its Chinese imports. Nonetheless, Conley terminal has achieved a fifth consecutive record year of generalised container throughput, handling a total of 307,331 teu between July 2018 and June 2019

The port’s trade with China declined by 3.94% to $971.71m as exports dropped 20.36% to $138.76m, while imports fell only 0.52% to $832.95m
