The figure is 11% more than the port of Ghent and ZSP Zeeland Seaports (Vlissingen and Terneuzen) handled as separate entities in H1 2017, before they merged as NSP at the end of last year.


Dry bulk totalled 16.1 Mt (+5%), mainly thanks to a rise of sand, gravel and other construction raw materials. Coal remained stable, with no tonnage given, while liquid bulk rose by almost 25% to 11 Mt, predominantly in the petrochemicals sector.


General cargo was just over 6 Mt (+6%), thanks to perishables, agricultural products, paper, cardboard and metals. Ro-ro and containers chalked a modest 2 Mt (+2%), mainly from the increased number of sailings to Norway and Sweden.


In line with the traffic trends of 2017, NSP does not expect H2 2018 to deliver a similarly high growth rate as achieved in H1.
