Port of Antwerp sees rise in cargo
The port handled some 34.46 million tons of cargo from January to March and harbor authorities have attributed the rise to continuing growth in container traffic. Container freight amounted to 14.44 million tons in the period, a rise of 14.2% on the same three months of 2001.
One of the reasons behind this was the arrival in 2002 of the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), now one of the port’s largest clients. Antwerp has also strengthened its position as the leading European fruit port.
