Port TEU's steep decline and POLA/POLB rail impacts?

As a numbers guy, I was wondering on the rail impacts on the decline in TEU's at POLB/POLA? How has this affected traffic on the Alameda Corridor, and/or port related transloads at places like the Shops, Industry, Hobart, or ELA?

POLB/POLA TEU's Drop

And, I guess a second question would be, with the relatively "high value" cargo TEU's down by nearly 20%, but total "volume" (I assume this is port "tonnage") slightly up 1.8% ovder 2018, what commodities are moving/shifting that measure of "volume" slightly upward with a decline in total "boxes" of this scale? Lumber dock imports from Canada? More Palm oil imports? Grain exports? Waste paper exports (higher tonnage in containers)? Other?

Since this is a Bay Area/NW oriented West Coast rail forum, is anyone seeing that kind of drop and/or maybe some kind of offsetting increase elsewhere, at other West Coast Ports? Is this possibly a shift in trade patterns and routing, or is this also the case at other ports?
