Conventional General Cargo Handling

Conventional General Cargo Handling 2014 / 2015


In 2015 throughput of non-containerized general cargo at 1.7 million tons remained 14.1 percent below the previous year’s total. Especially on exports of iron and steel via the Port of Hamburg (226,000 tons), it proved impossible to top the previous year’s strong figure. On the import side, however, the total for metals rose by 9.5 percent to 91,000 tons. And imports of project and heavy cargoes were kept stable at 134,000 tons.
