Foltz announced at its board meeting that the GPA continued to experience positive growth during the month of February and has recorded three consecutive months of increased trade through its ports. “Three consecutive months of double-digit growth is a positive sign that overall market conditions have improved considerably since last year,” said Foltz. Overall tonnage reports for February 2010 showed gains of 29.7 percent, which brings the GPA's year-to-date volume for the first eight months to a 2.7-percent increase compared with the same time period last year.
