CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The South Carolina Ports Authority saw port volumes increase again in the first two months of the fiscal year that began in July.

The authority reports that the equivalent of about 164,000 20-foot containers moved through the Port of Charleston during July and August. That’s up almost 14 percent from the same time last year.

The ports also handled 134,000 tons of cargo not shipped in containers. That’s an increase of almost 7 percent from the same period in 2013.
