Cargo traffic in Romanian sea ports up by 20 pc

The overall cargo traffic registered by Romania’s Constanta, Midia and Mangalia seaports from January to May this year stood at more than 23 million tons, up by 20 per cent year-on-year.

Valeriu Nicolae Ionescu, CEO of the Seaport Administration National Company of Constanta (CNAPM), informed through a communiqué released on Wednesday that sea traffic totalled 17.3 million tons in the first five months of this year (15.3 million tons in the same period last year), while river traffic totalled 5.7 million tons (4 million tons in the same period last year).

“For sea traffic the hike registered during the analyzed period stands at 13.15 per cent, while for river traffic the hike stands at 42.46 per cent, this development being determined by the conditions that favoured navigation on the Danube,” the Director of CNAPM Constanta stated.

According to him, cargo traffic hikes were registered in the case of cereal grains (from 4.16 million tons in January-May 2014 to 8.66 million tons in the same period this year), oil products (from 2 to 2.2 million tons), ore and nonferrous waste (from 1 to 1.32 million tons) and solid mineral fuel (from 669,373 tons to 1.3 million tons).

Cargo traffic drops were registered in the case of iron ore (from 2.5 to 1.2 million tons).

Cereal grains represented 37.6 per cent of the total cargo traffic registered by Romanian seaports, oil represented 11.9 per cent, various merchandise 12 per cent and oil products 9.5 per cent.
