More ships and more cargo in Kolding

More ships and more cargo in Kolding

19-07-2016 08:00:00


In the first half of 2016, 579,000 tons of cargo were handled at the Port of Kolding. This corresponds to just over eight percent extra freight, compared with the first half of 2015. Increased activity at the port has increased the port's turnover by 12 percent in the first six months of the year.

"The first half of 2016 has seen a steady increase in activity at the port. In fact, our turnover increased by 12 percent compared to the same period in 2015, which is fairly satisfactory. However, it is more satisfying that our earnings in the same period has increased by up to 25 percent. The growing earnings have succeeded because we have kept costs down while increased commercial efforts to optimize the use of the port areas and other facilities," says Anders Vang Bjerg Sørensen, CEO of the Port of Kolding.

Growth in the volume of goods may not sound so extreme, but behind the figure is an increase corresponding to 20 - 30 additional ships a year in the Port of Kolding. It is a noticeable increase in ship traffic. If the trend continues, more than 500 cargo ships will visit the Port of Kolding this year.

After a long period with minmal staffing at the port office, Kolding has hired a head of administration in the spring and is now searching for a Technology and Environment employee to further develop and optimize the port's facilities.
