In the first quarter of 2019, 5.1% more freight passed through the Port of Rotterdam than in the same period last year.

The total throughput in the breakbulk segment (Roll-on/Roll-off and other cargo) increased by 9.2% to 7.9 million tonnes. Ro-Ro traffic increased by 10.7% to 6.4 million tonnes.

Volumes increased particularly significantly in March, with the stockpiling of supplies in connection with a possible hard Brexit.
