International Traffic Speeds Up

International traffic speeds up at Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority

The volume of international cargo in and out of the Port of Cleveland is up nearly 28% over last year. Key to the increase in international traffic is the Cleveland-Europe Express, a once-a-month cargo service between Cleveland and Antwerp, Belgium.

Through July, international cargo is up to 204,448 metric tons from 160,014 metric tons in the like period of 2013, a 27.7% increase. The number of international vessels calling on Cleveland is up even more, to 38 ships from 23, a 65% increase.

The Cleveland-Europe Express is the only direct, scheduled vessel service that moves containerized and non-containerized cargo between the Great Lakes and Europe, through the Port of Antwerp. Learn more about why the Cleveland Plus region excels at import and export Рtranslating into faster shipping times and reduced costs for your business.
