Coal imports fell by 25.5% to 6.4 Mt, while oil products throughput was down by 6.7% to 22.2M tonnes, due to one terminal undergoing maintenance and a downturn in the diesel futures market.

Excluding coal, dry bulk volume increased by 16.8% to 5.2M tonnes, mainly due to increased sand and gravel imports for the construction market. Agribulk traffic was up by 18.5% to 3.9M tonnes. General cargo - breakbulk and ro-ro - was marginally down at 889,000 tonnes. Container traffic increased 30% year-on-year to 45,457 TEU, mainly due to the new Samskip-UK liner service.


The number of ship calls, including sea-going and inland waterway cruise ship calls, grew by 4.4% to 4,514.
