Rotterdam Container Throughput Increases

The port of Rotterdam has registered growth in container throughput for the first six months of this year.

Rotterdam Container Throughput Increases
According to MANA, From January to June 2017, Rotterdam port handled 6.7m teu of containers, up 9.3% compared to 6.09m teu recorded in the same period of last year, according to data from Port of Rotterdam Authority.
“Given its location on the coastline and excellent infrastructure, Rotterdam is more easily accessible for the largest vessels than other ports,” the port authority stated.
“There was therefore a sharp increase in feeder traffic (22.6%), with intercontinental cargoes arriving in Rotterdam being taken to smaller ports in Northwest Europe and vice-versa. 
“The incident indicates the importance of security for computer systems and networks, precisely now, when automation and digitalisation are becoming ever more important,” the Port of Rotterdam Authority said.
