More cargo handling at Lower Saxony seaports

OLDENBURG. The increase in cargo handling at the nine Lower Saxony seaports of Brake, Cuxhaven, Emden, Leer, Nordenham, Oldenburg, Papenburg, Stade and Wilhelmshaven in 2021 was mainly attributed to the strong rise in the container segment and general cargo. With at least 51 million tonnes, this represented a 6 per cent rise in goods in 2021 compared to the previous year. In this context, liquid bulk goods were up by 3 per cent (2021: 25.44 million tonnes/2020: 24.77 million tonnes), whilst non-bulk goods (including ro-ro cargo and containers) climbed to roughly 13.87 million tonnes (+20 per cent/2020: 11.56 million tonnes). As regards this cargo segment, there was a significant increase in the handling of forest products and containers. At the same time, cargo handling of new vehicles was down by 4 per cent and stood at 1.28 million (2020: 1.33 million). With 712,953 standard containers (TEU), the amount of cargo handled at the EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven has increased by 68.5 per cent. This was due, in particular, to the substantial rise in unscheduled ships arriving at the dock and the pandemic-driven provisional transfer of services from other ports in northern Europe. With 12.09 million tonnes of dry bulk cargo recorded in 2021, the quantity handled was similar to 2020 (12.13 million tonnes).
