Significant growth at the Port of Aarhus

Significant growth at the Port of Aarhus

20-07-2016 12:00:00

The country's largest commercial port is faring well. In the first half of 2016 the Port of Aarhus had growth in cargo turnover of 11 percent compared to the same period in 2015. 4,2 million tons of goods have gone over the docks of Aarhus in the first six months of the year

"We don't really feel the pressure on our industry, both when talking about a slowdown in cargo volumes and excess capacity. Here in Aarhus, we have experienced growth in cargo turnover several years in a row, and we also lack capacity, which is why we recently decided to build a brand new Omnitermina" said Port Director Jacob Flyvbjerg Christensen.

The growth in cargo turnover is not only supported by a single area, as there is growth in all areas. The strong growth is mainly due to growing sales of bunker oil, increasing grain exports and rising exports in the container area.

"My best guess is that there is a structural development underway, which in a few years will mean we have fewer but larger commercial ports in Denmark. But when we talk ports with international potential, there will probably only be room for very few in the long term," said Jacob Flyvbjerg Christensen.

He hopes that the country's politicians will pay attention when planning and deciding future infrastructure investments. The Port of Aarhus' closest competitor is Hamburg. If it is to take market shares from Hamburg Harbour, it is, according to the director, imperative that traffic congestion to and from Aarhus is minimized.
