NCSP Group’s cargo turnover totals 47.5 million tons (-12.7%).
Transshipment of liquid cargo amounted to 37.4 million tons, down by 7.3 million tons (-16.4%). The indicator was mostly affected by the decrease in transshipment of crude oil (-22.8%, or 6.4 million tons) against the backdrop of a decline in oil exports (implementation of the OPEC+ agreement to reduce oil production from May 1, 2020).
Transshipment of dry cargo amounted to 10 million tons (up by 4.4% or 0.4 million tons). The growth in ferrous metals and iron, sugar, containers, perishables and chemical goods offset a slight decrease in transshipment of other cargo.
The growth in ferrous metals and iron turnover was driven by strong demand for exports amid record prices in global markets. The increase in sugar transshipment was due to higher demand from CIS Asian countries for imported raw sugar for processing.
Container transshipment amounted to 2.1 million tons (up by 7.4% or 0.1 million tons). Growth of container turnover in twenty-foot equivalent (TEU) was 9.1%.
