Cargo statistics from the Port of Rotterdam for Q1 show healthy increases in the port’s main cargoes.

 

By tonnage, cargo transhipment increased to 123.8 Mt in Q1 2019 (+5.1% year-on-year), dry bulk recorded 19.4 Mt (+3.7%), and liquid bulk increased to 58.5 Mt (+4.6%), mostly due to an increase in crude oil to 28 Mt (+10.4%).

 

In total 38 Mt of containerised cargo was handled (+5.9%), which equated to 3.725M TEU (+7.3%).

 

Breakbulk totalled 7.9 Mt (+9.2%), thanks to a 10.5% pre Brexit-driven growth of ro ro business in the first quarter to 6.4 Mt. The Rotterdam port authority anticipates the whole-year result to be slightly over the 469 Mt achieved in 2018.
