JULI MÆNGDERAPPORT: STÆRKT PASSAGEROPSVING, NEDGANG I KANALENS FRAGTMARKED16.8.2022 07:35:00 CEST | pressemeddelelse

INVESTOR NEWS nr. 24 - 16. august 2022 Færge – fragt: De samlede mængder i juli 2022 var 6,2% lavere end i 2021. Aktiviteten var generelt robust på fragtmarkederne bortset fra dele af Østersø-regionen og Kanalens Doverstræde. North Seas mængder var samlet set lavere end i 2021, da ruterne til Storbritannien var på niveau, mens ruterne mellem Sverige og kontinentet var lavere end i 2021. Sidstnævnte nedgang skyldtes lavere bil- og papirmængder samt høj aktivitet for disse segmenter sidste år i juli. Mediterraneans mængder fortsatte med at stige, hvilket afspejler en fortsat høj tyrkisk industriproduktion og eksport. Channels mængder var lavere end i 2021 som følge af en nedgang i det samlede markeds mængder. Baltic Seas mængder var lavere end i 2021 på grund af krigen i Ukraine. Mængderne var primært lavere mellem Tyskland og Litauen. For de sidste 12 måneder 2022-21 var der en nedgang i det samlede antal transporterede fragt-lanemeter på 0,6% til 43,6 mio. fra 43,9 mio. i 2021-20. Færg
