11.8 million tons of goods were reloaded in ports in Serbia last year
11.8 million tons of goods were reloaded in ports in Serbia in 2018, which is an increase by 11.5 percent when compared to the year before, and is the result of increased economic activity, the Port Governance Agency has announced today.
The most frequently reloaded type of cargo still remains, gravel, sand and construction aggregate, which combined account for almost 26 percent of reloading.
An increase in reloading of oil and oil derivatives represents a novelty, it reaching 18,6 percent, while reloading of ores had a stake of 18.4 percent, while grain had 13 percent.
“The implementation of the Government’s Action Plan for Development of Maritime Transport and cooperation between the Agency and juridical ministry resulted in a total of 75 percent of reloaded goods in designated port areas, which is an increase by five percent when compared to 2017,” the Agency has announced, adding that less than a half of an overall reload was conducted in designated port areas three years ago.
