Record freight in 2017 at Rotterdam

Tags: ,


Rotterdam port grew in 2017 helped by a significant gain in container throughput, the port authority said in a statement. Total cargo volume increased by 1.3% to 476 (461) million tonnes. Container volume was higher at 142.6 million tonnes, a 12.3% gain over the previous year.

Expressed as TEUs – the usual way to count container numbers – throughput was 10.9% higher at 13.7 million. Increases in container traffic was offset by a fall in dry bulk freight of 2.6% and in liquid bulk of 4.1%. Break bulk (roll-on/roll-off and other break bulk) increased by 7%.
