U.S. containerized imports dropped 2 percent in April year over year to 1,372,851 twenty-foot-equivalent units, as retailers responded to a slowing economy by keeping inventories lean, reported Mario O. Moreno, economist for The Journal of Commerce/PIERS. The decline followed a 7.3 percent year-over-year gain in March due, in part, to an early Lunar New Year in China. Leading the losses in April were footwear and miscellaneous fruits, each down 20 percent; menswear, down 19 percent; and women's and infant wear, down 11 percent.
