Rotterdam port box throughput & overall volume up in Q1


The volume of freight handled in the port of Rotterdam in the first quarter of 2021 totalled 115.8 million tonnes. This constitutes a 3% increase over the same period last year. As such, the port of Rotterdam has set a new step in its recovery from the decrease in throughput in 2020 as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic.


In the containers segment, the number of TEUs handled rose by 4.5%. When calculated on the basis of this standard unit, container volumes rose as a result of stronger demand for consumer goods. Measured in tonnes, container throughput showed a modest decline (-0.7%), which can be explained to an extent by, on the one hand, an increase in the number of empty containers, and on the other hand by a lower average weight per loaded unit, said a release.
