DPA Statistics / Over 1,532 thousand tons of freights handled in the course of the first five months, indicating an increase of 10% in merchant ships processing rates/ June 15th 2020

According to the DPA Statistics Department analysis, a significant increase of 10% is reflected in merchant ships processing volumes, accordingly in the Western and Eastern Terminals have been handled 165 cargo vessels carrying over 651 thousand tons of various freight categories.

In the interim, a decrease of 20% is indicated in the overall ferry freight rates while the container traffic volumes dropped by 14% – a considerable abatement largely attributed to the depletion in routes frequencydue to the Covid-19 pandemic traffic restrictions.

The DPA Statistics Department inferes that the total volume of goods hauled by 500 cargo vessels in the largest port of the country during the first five months of the year reached 1,532  million tons.
