By the end of the third quarter, the transshipment of liquid bulk totalled 159.5 million tonnes, equal to last year's volume.

The transshipment of crude oil was above last year's level in all three quarters, an increase of 2.8 per cent. There was more supply because the refineries in Rotterdam and Antwerp boosted production after the investments made in plants over recent years.



The mineral oil products segment showed a downturn of 10 per cent mainly due to greatly reduced global trade in fuel oil, a trend that has been ongoing for a number of years. Within the mineral oil products sector, a slight increase could be seen in the transhipment of other fuels, such as diesel.



LNG rose by 46 per cent in the first nine months of the year due to higher European consumption of gas produced in the Atlantic region.



Other breakbulk was up 4.4 per cent through to the end of the third quarter. Biomass grew 84pc as a result of increased co-firing in coal-fired plants.
