Transhipment in Ploce up 5% in 2013
Port of Ploce, Croatia transshipped a total of 2.7 million tonnes of cargo during 2013, which was a five-percent rise from 2012, says Mr. Ivan Pavlovic, director of ”Luka PLoce”.
The result in 2013 was still below the level of the Ploce port total annual transhipment capacity of five million tonnes, and this low achievement in 2013 was ascribed to the objective state of affairs on the market of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the main user of the Ploce port.
The transhipment of bulk cargo registered a rise while container cargo was on the decline.
The new facilities for transhipment of liquid cargo are to be in working condition in June this year which will positively impact the company’s performance, according to the Mr. Ivan Pavlovic who expects that the amount of cargo transloaded by this seaport will be by 600,000 tonnes higher in 2014 than in 2013.
