Container handling with record result / Total handling at pre-crisis level / Chemicals and mineral oils set for growth
Container handling on the three modes of transport ship, train and truck rose to about 2.25 m TEU, equivalent to a plus of about 25% compared with the previous year. At nearly 28 m tonnes, total handling on the ship and train transport modes in the duisport Group's ports has almost reached the level of the record year 2008 (28.3 m tonnes) and has thus compensated for the collapses last year.
"The excellent results in container handling show that we are on the right road at the Duisburg location. This strengthens us in our intention to develop our capacity in order to direct growing flows of goods through Duisburg," said Erich Staake, Chief Executive Officer of Duisburger Hafen AG.
There was an uneven picture among the other groups of goods. While coal handling was largely able to compensate for the strong declines last year, the recovery in steel handling remained well below the pre-crisis level. However, the development in mineral oils and chemical products has been very pleasing. "After having been able to keep the high pre-crisis period level in these groups of goods last year, we expect double digit growth rates in this segment in the year just ended," enthused Erich Staake.
