Strong growth in throughput in H1

BREMEN. The first six months of this year saw a sharp increase in total throughput at the ports of Bremen. Between January and the end of June, the ports handled a total of 35.2 million tons, an increase of 7.8 per cent year-on-year. “It is particularly satisfying that in some areas, throughput has now actually exceeded the pre-Corona figures,” stated Dr Claudia Schilling, Senator for Science and Ports, commenting on the newly published data.

One example is container traffic: with growth of 11.1 %, container throughput is now higher than before the pandemic. Throughput in this segment amounted to a total of 2.59 million TEU, 440,000 TEU of which were handled in June alone. The ports of Bremen were even more successful in another segment: during H1, 934,000 vehicles were transhipped at the ports, an increase of 34.4 per cent. However, it has to be borne in mind that the pandemic had caused a drastic slump in vehicle throughput during H1 2020.
