Barcelona, Spain (PortSEurope) June 12, 2018 – Barcelona port broke its monthly cargo traffic record in May, when it handled a total of 6 million tonnes of cargo, backed by container throughput.
May was the best month in the history of the port, surpassing the month of July 2017, which was the monthly record so far, with 5.9 million tonnes.
“Reaching a record like this in May reaffirms the consolidation of the improvement was made in 2017” the president of the port of Barcelona, Sixte Cambra, said.
During the last 12 months the total monthly traffic of the port has always exceeded 5 million tonnes, a figure that the harbour had never reached in the ten years until February 2017.
