It said the increase included a 5% rise in revenue from the shuttle train service, reaching €106.5m (£89m) in the first three months of the year.
Freight vehicle numbers rose 4% to 347,000 in Q1, while car shuttle usage was lifted by 1% to 448,000.
It also saw a 13% surge in so-called through freight trains, operated by third parties, to 706 in the period.
