In the Port of the capital, the shipment of plaster – which has grown by 41.3% – accounts for half of the freight traffic, with 1.5 million tons. Cement follows, with 200,000 tons. With smaller volumes appear the materials for the construction, the crushed marble and limestone, the agro-food products and the paper.
