Last year ended with a new record in freight traffic served by our region's seaports. In total, they made 907.8mt, that's 3.0% over 2016, the previous all-time high year.
Apart from Denmark and Latvia, all countries advanced.
Though liquids are still dominating the tables, this freight group lost almost 11.4mt in 2017 (incl. a drop in Russia), and consequently market share (2.43 percentage points) in favour of dry bulk (+1.44pp) and general cargo (+0.99pp).
