Freight volumes through the Port of Rotterdam grew 6.8 percent in the first half of the year compared to the same period last year. This development is mainly caused by a soaring growth of 29.7 percent in the amount of oil products, while the amount of crude oil passing through the Dutch mega-port increased by 8.3 percent.
Container volumes grew 3.7 percent, while dry bulk, such as agricultural bulk, coal and ore, declined across the board for a combined setback of 4.9 percent, notes the Port of Rotterdam in a half-year report.
