Port of Tallinn Saw An Increased Cargo Flow In Q2
In 2019 Q2, 5.3 million tonnes of cargo and 2.9 million passengers passed through the harbours of Tallinna Sadam. Compared to the same period of previous year, the cargo volume increased by 4.3% (but mainly because of a new dry bulk terminal) and the passenger volume by 0.1%. The number of ship calls grew by 3.7% to 2039 calls.
At the end of June, Eckerö Line vessel FINBO CARGO started operating on the Muuga-Vuosaari route, serving both trucks and passengers with vehicles. Also, Tallink started to transport passengers with cars on its (mainly) freight ferry SEA WIND, already operating on the route. The positive effects of these innovations will be reflected in the results starting from the third quarter.
