About Tonnage Statistics
Provided tonnage statistics include annual imports and exports of liquid bulk commodities (gasoline, marine and jet fuel, petroleum products and crude oil) in barrels and revenue tons, by calendar and fiscal year.
Annual tonnage statistics with monthly breakdowns for the Port of Los Angeles are available for the years linked below. Monthly breakdowns for the current year will be posted as new data becomes available.

About Revenue Tons
A Revenue Ton (RT) is a measurement used for billing purposes, primarily for bulk cargo. If cargo is rated as weight or measure (W/M), whichever produces the highest revenue will be considered the RT. Weights are based on Metric Tons (MT) and measures are based on cubic meters. The RT figure represents a combination of metric tons and cubic meters, which is not directly comparable to any other port’s metric tonnage figures. The Port of Los Angeles charges a flat rate per twenty-foot-equivalent container, and does not collect actual metric tonnage data for all cargo.
Conversion method: 1 Metric Ton (MT) equals 1,000 kilograms [2,204.6 pounds]. 1 Revenue Ton (RT) can equal 1 metric ton OR 1 cubic meter.
