Holiday season sparks retail import shipments, says Port Tracker By Jeff Berman · December 9, 2016 · LM
November volume was estimated at 1.53 million TEU for a 3.6 percent annual increase, with December pegged at 1.48 million TEU for a 3.2 percent increase. And for all of 2016, the report is calling for volume to be up 1.6 percent annually at 18.6 million TEU compared to 2015’s 18.2 million TEU, which was up 5.4 percent over 2014. The first half of 2016 saw a 1.6 percent annual increase at 9 million TEU. The 1.6 percent estimate is lower than last month’s 2.2 percent prediction.

AAR reports annual gains in November for U.S. carload and intermodal volumes By Jeff Berman · December 9, 2016 · LM

This is a longer stretch of declines than a 19-month run of downward volumes that occurred during the Great Recession, the AAR said, adding that one factor behind the November increase was easier annual comparisons, coupled with how carloads did not see as much of an October to November decline as usual this year.
