Successful semi-annual balance 2021 – duisport reports double-digit growth in container handling
- Total handling volumes slightly above the level of the previous year.
- Expansion of handling capacities strengthens market position.
At the half-year mark, container traffic at Duisburger Hafen AG (duisport) is significantly higher than in the previous year. Container handling in the first half of 2021 was around 2.2 million TEUR, which is 10 percent higher than in the previous year (2020: 2 million TEUR).
The tonnage growth in combined transportation even grew by 11 percent. Shipping volumes increased by 5 percent and rail segment by 14 percent compared to the previous year.
Rail-based goods traffic with China, as well as European connections with Poland and southern Europe, were the main drivers behind this growth. Both the expansion of existing routes and new destinations, e.g. Spain, contributed to this.
“This is a very pleasing and positive development. We also expect to see strong growth in the combined transportation segment in the second half of the year,” says duisport CEO Erich Staake. “Fortunately, a new container terminal will go into operation at logport VI at the end of this year, which will further increase the handling capacities in Duisburg.”
“At this time, the handling of containers, swap bodies and trailers already accounts for over 60 percent of the total handling volume at the Port of Duisburg. It means that the structural transformation in this important growth segment has also been successful,” concludes Erich Staake.
Total handling volumes in the first half of 2021 were 29.5 million tonnes, which is slightly above the previous year’s result (2020: 29.2 million tonnes). The strong growth in the combined transportation segment over-compensates for the decline
