Halifax cargo volumes hold steady

Canada’s Port of Halifax on the Atlantic Coast has reported continued steady cargo trends, with total and container volumes in 2019 nearly matching 2018.

Performance in the container sector was described as “consistent with last year” as containerized throughput amounted to 546,691 TEUs versus 548,000 TEUs in 2018. In the past few years, the port has attracted new Asian services via the Suez Canal and new generation containerships above 10,000-TEUs capacity.

Total traffic handled at the port in 2019 was 8.6 million tonnes versus 9 million tonnes in 2018.
