US-bound imports are on course for record high levels. Logistics Trends and Insights, citing Port Tracker, predicts that, between September and December, imports will grow 2.3% to 4.3% year on year. With ocean imports normally slowing after the September and October peaks, the 4% growth expected in December marks a significant upturn – especially considering the current tariff stand-off between China and the US. Port Tracker suggests this growth may be linked to the trend of importing ahead of tariffs, and believes it may even continue through to the end of the year.
