Casablanca, Morocco (PortSEurope) January 19, 2022 – Last year, the Port of Casablanca handled 29 million tons of cargo, equal to 32% of the total cargo handle by ports administered by state-owned Agence Nationale des Ports (ANP). This is a -4.3% decrease compared to 2020. The decline was mainly explained by mainly by the strong drop of cereal imports (-21.5%), phosphates(-21.5%) and livestock feed (-18.2%).
However, container and sugar traffic increased by +4.7% and +12.2% respectively , with respective volumes of 1.1 million tonnes and 1.5 million tonnes. Casablanca handled 4.3 million tons of cereals, representing 60% of the country’s total traffic of cereals, but also down -21.5% on the previous year. State-owned Agence Nationale des Ports (ANP) is the regulatory body of the Moroccan port system. The ANP’s report (in French) for 2021 can be accessed here Copyright (C) PortSEurope.
