For breakbulk, volumes grew by 16 percent with the space available for handling breakbulk cargoes increasing by 26 hectares (64 acres).

The port says that it has also been successful in attracting new (semi) liner services with eight such services for breakbulk cargoes adding Rotterdam as a new port of call.
