New container record at Port of Aarhus
Yesterday morning container number 522.717 was loaded onto quayside at the Port of Aarhus. That is a record breaking number. On top of this, inventory shows that the ports turnover from freight broke last years record on December 12.
”There is no denying the fact that we have a good grip on the market. Both APM Terminals and ACL, who are the container ports two terminal operators, operate professional companies with a high level of service on time.
I am sure that the transport buyers agrees with me about this, otherwise we would not see an increase year after year, "says Port Director, Jakob Flyvbjerg Christensen,
Last year, the Port of Aarhus witnessed a 14 percent increase in the number of containers loaded from ship to land or reverse, on the container terminal. That was a significant increase which made for a record breaking number of 511.424 containers in 2017.
That number was surpassed on December 12 this year, and there is therefore good reason to expect another good year with a decent increase in the number of containers moved in and out of Denmark’s absolute largest container port.
At the beginning of the year, Jakob Flyvbjerg Christensen was humble about beating last year’s impressive numbers, but now that a year has gone by he can ascertain that the success 2017 was not a one-time thing.
