" Yet despite the backlogs, retail imports are still relatively high. NRF’s and Hackett Associates’ monthly global port tracker determined that U.S. ports covered by their report handled 2.27 million twenty-foot equivalent units in August, which is 3.5% up from July and 7.8% higher than August 2020.
