Marseille, France (PortSEurope) January 26, 2021 – Last year, the southern French port of Marseille Fos recorded 69 million tons of cargo, compared to 79 million in 2019, a decrease of -12.7%. Various cargo traffic was 18.3 million tons (-11%), of which over 12 million tons of containerized loads (-10%), four million tons of rolling stock (-11%) and conventional goods 2.1 million (-17%). Liquid bulk
decreased to 40.7 million tons (-11%), a reduction that – with the exception of liquefied natural gas (+6%) and agri-food bulk (+9%) – was due to a decline in oil traffic (-16%) and that of chemical products (-2%). Solid bulk was down -22% at 9.9 million tons. In the passenger sector, traffic collapsed by -76% with only 742,000 passengers due to the elimination of cruise traffic due to the Covid-19 coronavirus crisis and the reduction in traffic of scheduled services with Corsica (-28 %), Tunisia (-55%) and Algeria (-89%) Copyright (C) PortSEurope.
