3rd quarter cargo turnover figures for major Danish ports
You might be getting a big Christmas present this year. In any case, more containers have arrived in the third quarter - an increase of just over 3 percent since the second quarter. In fact, goods in containers have not been higher in the last five years Overall, cargo turnover at major Danish ports has increased slightly by 2.5 percent since the second quarter, while cargo turnover on ferry goods has decreased somewhat by just over 9 percent. The increase in goods turnover is, among other things, caused by increased turnover of coal. The decline in ferry goods may be influenced by the closure of the Kalundborg-Aarhus route. The route was closed at the beginning of October 2013 and may thus help to explain why the figures for the 3rd quarter for goods turnover at major Danish ports have fallen significantly. With the fairly stable turnover from Q2 to Q3 - a decrease of less than one percent - Danish Ports can be pleased with the weak signs of growth, and the ports' central role in the growth seems to continue - and not least that the packages under the Christmas tree will be big.
