PH container traffic surges 53% in Jan-Nov

 

The volume of cargo passing through the country’s ports jumped 53 percent to 9.08 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) in the 11 months to November last year on the back of strong domestic demand.

“The increase in container traffic, particularly domestic box volume, somehow cushioned the decline in foreign overall volume, specifically export traffic,” the Philippine Ports Authority said.

Foreign container traffic grew 23.25 percent to 4.361 million TEUs. Export containerized traffic went up 37 percent while import container traffic rose 10 percent.

Total cargo volume was almost flat at 227.312 million metric tons.

Passenger traffic increased by 4.31 percent to 64.874 million passengers.

Shipcalls, meanwhile, increased by 3.27 percent to 410,384.
