THE terminals managed by China's Qinhuangdao port registered flat to marginally negative growth across practically all segments on the back of weak first quarter commodities trading. The only exception being container traffic.

Container throughput rose by nine per cent to 295,080 TEU, up from 269,785 TEU in the first quarter of 2017.
Dry bulk throughput slid to 85.4 million tonnes from 86 million tonnes last year. Coal throughput increased four per cent to 59.6 million tonnes, up from 57.5 million tonnes previously. However, metal ore volumes declined by nine per cent to 25.8 million tonnes, down from 28.5 million tonnes, reported Seatrade Maritime News, Colchester, UK.
Oil and liquefied chemicals throughput decreased by a quarter to 650,000 tonnes from 850,000 tonnes in the corresponding prior year period.
