Lower Saxony seaports record rise in handling

OLDENBURG. With approx. 54 million tonnes, around six per cent more goods passed through the quaysides of Lower Saxony’s nine seaports in Brake, Cuxhaven, Emden, Leer, Nordenham, Oldenburg, Papenburg, Stade and Wilhelmshaven in 2022 than in 2021. The increase was primarily the result of healthy growth in the solid bulk cargo sector, whose throughput was up by 20 per cent to 14.93 million tonnes (2021: 12.41 million). Moreover, the handling of liquid bulk goods also rose by two per cent (2022: 25.88 million tonnes, 2021: 25.44 million tonnes), while the handling of general cargo (including RoRo and containers) was down slightly by seven per cent to around 19.60 million tonnes (2021: 21 million tonnes). Despite the good results recorded in forest products, it was not possible to compensate for this decline. The handling of around 1.43 million new vehicles resulted in a rise of almost twelve per cent compared to 2021 (1.27 million).
