North Sea Port: record H1 cargo volume

North Sea Port (NSP) has reported a first half seaborne cargo throughout increase of 11% to 35.8 Mt

The figure is 11% more than the port of Ghent and ZSP Zeeland Seaports (Vlissingen and Terneuzen) handled as separate entities in H1 2017.

 

Dry bulk totalled 16.1 Mt (+5%), mainly thanks to a rise of sand, gravel and other construction raw materials. Coal remained stable, with no tonnage given, while liquid bulk rose by almost 25% to 11 Mt, predominantly in the petrochemicals sector.

 

General cargo was just over 6 Mt (+6%), thanks to perishables, agricultural products, paper, cardboard and metals. Ro-ro and containers chalked a modest 2 Mt (+2%), mainly from the increased number of sailings to Norway and Sweden.

 

In line with the traffic trends of 2017, NSP does not expect H2 2018 to deliver a similarly high growth rate as achieved in H1.
