Author: Posttime:2018-04-11 08:13:09

Reflecting the sluggish commodities trading conditions in the first quarter, the terminals managed by Qinhuangdao Port saw flat to slightly negative growth in almost all segments except container throughput.

Dry bulk throughput overall was barely changed at 85.4m tonnes from 86.0m tonnes in the first quarter of 2017. Among segments, coal throughput rose 4% to 59.6m tonnes from 57.5m tonnes previously but metal ore volumes fell 9% to 25.8m tonnes from 28.5m tonnes in the previous corresponding period.
Oil and liquefied chemicals throughput fell by almost a quarter to 650,000 tonnes from 850,000 tonnes previously. Only container throughput put in a decent increase of 9% to 295,080 teu from 269,785 teu previously.
