Port of Piraeus: Small Losses and 4th Place Amongst the Top-15 European Ports

By | 2020 Newsletter week 34 | No Comments

According to the recent data from Porteconomics.eu, the port of Piraeus is ranked 4th among the top 15 ports in Europe despite the pandemic. In the first semester of 2020, the handling of containers in the largest port of Greece decreased only by 6.2%, compared to 2019. That figure reveals that the largest Greek port shows significantly better yields compared to other ports controlled by the Chinese COSCO as it seems to have withstood the strong shocks of the first wave of the pandemic in March and June.

On the other hand, regardless of the fluctuations of traffic as reflected for the port of Piraeus and the other fourteen ports in the data, Piraeus continues to claim one of the first three places in the ranking and consequently a better position in the world ranking under conditions related to infrastructure, the construction of the 4th pier as well as the railway project.
