Port of Rotterdam reports yet another record year. In 2018, the port handled 469 million tons of cargo, which is slightly more than in 2017, which was also a high point, writes the port.
The port's growth came in particular from container volumes, as 14.5 million teu went through the port, corresponding to a growth of 5.7 percent. Conversely, cargoes of crude oil, mineral oil and dry bulk, including agribulk, all decreased. Things looked quite different for liquefied natural gas, LNG, which grew by 163.6 percent and biomass, which experienced a growth of 31.6 percent.
