A total of 11.4 million tonnes of cargo passed through Ashdod port, an increase of 3.7 per cent compared to the first half of last year, reported London's Container Management.

Ashdod Port Company explained in a statement that the primary increase in cargo is a result of growth in the scope of containers, metal and mortar imports, as well as iron and scrap exports.

Container and general cargo volume growth helped push first-half revenue up 4.3 per cent year on year to ILS616 million (US$173 million).
