The title refers to a new all-time in our region's seaports' total freight throughput, but maybe more importantly to a marked increase in the general cargo segment's share, a mere 2.2mt behind liquid bulk.
What's worth noting, too, is the fact that all countries pulled off advancing their general cargo traffic (except for Estonia which remained flat).
However, despite exercising due diligence, the figures we're publishing should be taken with a grain of salt. All because national statistics have yet again deteriorated, not all of them that's true, but the downward trend has sadly been noticeable, hence all the footnotes.
That said, we keep the finger on the pulse and, likewise last year, shall share with you the updated numbers once we've got hold of them.
Till then, let us celebrate another milestone ahead of the one billion tonnes summit that's just in front of our eyes!Download PDF
