NEW YORK — Container traffic levels at the nation's largest ports have continued to fall, as economic difficulties persist, a trend that experts predict will carry through to October.
According to the National Retail Federation's monthly Port Tracker report, the number of 20-foot equivalent units, or TEU, handled in April fell 4.7 percent to 1.3 million compared with the same period a year ago. However, it represented a marked improvement from March levels of 1.2 million, the lowest trade volume reported in two years.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
