Valenciaport increases box volumes in April

Valenciaport’s terminals have confirmed in April that the Spanish export sector is in a reactivation phase. After a period of stagnation and decline, the Valencian terminals are returning to positive signs and increases in cargo traffic.

The major Spanish port handled 461,246 TEUs in April, translating to a 13.51% growth compared with the same month last year.

In general, an analysis of the figures in the Bulletin shows growth in several types of cargo: solid bulk (+51.69%) and vehicles (+17.80%) and also in transshipment (+13.93%) – derived from the change in shipping lines’ routes due to the Red Sea crisis.

By sectors, the port's data shows a slight decrease in construction materials (-1.78%); while vehicles and transport elements grow (+6.69%); iron and steel (7.98%); non-metallic minerals (46.99%), fertilisers (+15.37%), chemical products (+9.01%) and agri-foodstuffs (+6.58%); and energy (-40.65%).

The Valenciaport Statistical Bulletin shows that ro-ro traffic increased in the first four months of the year by 6.4% while UTIs (Intermodal Transport Units) increased by 10.66%.

Overall, almost 7 million tonnes (+8.84%) passed through the docks of Valenciaport in the previous month.
