Koper, Slovenia (PortSEurope) May 14, 2021 – In the first quarter 2021, total cargo handled by the port was 4.88 million tons, compared to 5.18 million tons in the same period last year, a reduction of -5.8%. The figure would have been worse but for the +15.7% increase in the month of March. Only the traffic of containers and rolling stock increased, reaching 2.43 million
tons (+10.9%) and 286,000 tons (+11.8%) respectively. The fall in liquid bulk traffic was accentuated, with 625,000 tons (-32.7%), as well as that of conventional goods, which totaled 283,000 tons (-42.9%). The reduction in solid bulk is more contained, which fell by -3.9% to 1.25 million tons. The +15.7% increase recorded in March alone compared to the same month of 2020 was generated by the growth in container traffic (+30.2%), rolling stock (+38.2%) and solid bulk ( +27.5%) which more than offset the decreases in liquid bulk (-12.0%) and conventional goods (-38.2%).
