Rise in cargo trade at the Bremen Ports

BREMEN/BREMERHAVEN. The Ports of Bremen have managed to offset the decline in the cargo trade experienced in 2020 due to the pandemic. In 2021, Bremen and Bremerhaven recorded a rise in sea freight to the tune of 69.7 million tonnes, a 4.8 per cent increase compared to the previous year. Provisional annual figures for cargo handling in the city of Bremen in 2021 stood at 12.9 million tonnes (a 23.6 per cent rise) and 56.8 million tonnes (a 1.3 per cent rise) in Bremerhaven. Substantial increases were recorded in the handling of bulk goods: 9.7 million tonnes equates to a 12.5 per cent rise. In 2021, even general cargo handling was up by 3.7 per cent to 60 million tonnes. A positive trend was also recorded for container handling, which increased by around five million TEU (+5.2 per cent) and 51.6 million tonnes (+1.1 per cent) respectively. By contrast, vehicle handling in Bremerhaven was more or less on par (-0.8 per cent) with the previous year at a little over 1.7 million vehicles.
