Improvement in the port of Aarhus
Container revenue continues to increase in Denmark’s biggest port for containers. After last year’s improvement of 14 percent, the port of Aarhus’ results for the first half of the year shows an increase of 8 percent.
In the first half of 2017, the port handled 251.352 container units (TEU). In 2018 this number has increased with more than 20.000 containers to 271.604 TEU that were lifted over the dock with the harbors container cranes.
In total, the freight turnover for the first half of the year in the port of Aarhus shows a drop of 1 percent, which is a result of factors such as a decrease in sales of single bulk product, like mineral oil.
"The turnover from mineral oil has fluctuated over the last few years, and it has often affected our freight turnover. But I believe that this is something we will have to live with for a while yet. However, our analysis of the field shows that it is only one product that affects negatively while the rest of the business area is in progress, "says Jakob Flyvbjerg Christensen.
