Freight turnover of Transiidikeskus terminals totaled 639,000 tons

The freight turnover of the terminals of the Estonian freight transit operator Transiidikeskus AS in the first quarter totaled 639,000 tons, 1.1% less than in the same period a year earlier, informs LETA/BNS.

The Muuga container terminal of Transiidikeskus handled in the three months 48,400 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) of containers, which represents a year-on-year drop of 8.7%. The tonnage of goods transported in containers decreased 4.2%, the company said.

The general goods terminal handled 122,200 tons of break bulk and bulk goods, 14.4% more than the year before.

"Against the backdrop of the whole sector's fall, we're making efforts to find new clients. Of course I agree with the Port of Tallinn's new chief Valdo Kalm that finding new cargo flows is the joint task of the whole sector. If the sector has fallen times and neighbors have lowered their harbor and freight dues so as to win big international clients, our cost structure cannot remain the same as in good times," Transiidikeskus CEO Erik Laidvee said.

Transiidikeskus AS is an Estonian specialized operator of container and general goods terminals at the port of Muuga just outside Tallinn.
