Container exports from Japan to the U.S. amounted to 47,993 TEUs in September (based on volumes at ports of origin), which decreased 8% from the previous month but increased 5.2% from the same month of last year, according to Descartes Datamyne.

Direct shipments accounted for 27,009 TEUs, which shrank 9.5% year on year, while those transshipped in third countries and regions totaled 20,984 TEUs, which have exceeded the 20,000-TEU line for seven months in a row and held a share of 43.7% of the total.

Transshipment containers' share was the third largest, which, Descartes Datamyne says, was made by disruptions at the U.S. West Coast ports, the suspension of calls at ports in Japan and so on. Containers transshipped in South Korea came to 13,943 TEUs, which went up 26.3%; in China, 3,081 TEUs, up 30.7%; and in Taiwan, 2,218 TEUs, up 216.9%. In contrast, those transshipped in Singapore declined 1.4% to 1,167 TEUs.
