Amsterdam region ports see transhipment cargo boost in 2014

The ports of Amsterdam, Ijmuiden, Beverwijk and Zaanstad have seen a record total of 97.4m tonnes of transhipment cargo in 2014, a 1.7% increase over the previous year.  

Transhipment in Ijmuiden rose by 3% to 17.3m tonnes, decreased in Beverwijk by 9% to approximately 0.2m tonnes, and rose in Zaanstad by 17% to approximately 0.2m tonnes.

Meanwhile Amsterdam saw a 2% rise in transhipment liquid bulk cargo to 42m tonnes from 41.1m tonnes in 2013 and a 1% increase in dry bulk transhipments to 34.4m tonnes from 33.7m in 2013.

 

However, container and mixed cargo transhipment at Amsterdam decreased by 11% to 3.3m tonnes, with the transhipment of automobiles, ro-ro and other mixed cargo falling by 13% and the transhipment of container cargo decreasing by 4%, or 57,000 teu.

 

“2014 was a successful year on a number of fronts,” said Havenbedrijf Amsterdam ceo Dertje Meijer. “Over the past year we saw a positive decision be reached with respect to the new large sea lock, finalised our Vision 2030 in collaboration with our stakeholders and obtained a number of environmental permits that can be an impetus for our activities by, for example, providing greater scope for lighterage within the existing environmental limits.

 

“It is fantastic to be able to conclude the year with these transhipment figures. The focus in 2015 will be primarily on the preparations for SAIL Amsterdam 2015, the roll-out of our Vision 2030 and the preparations for the construction of the new large sea lock.”
