    Tallink Grupp released its passenger and cargo transport statistics for IQ'2018

     

    The Group reports transporting 1,930,449 passengers in the first quarter of 2018, which is 0.5% less than in the same period in 2017. At the same time, the number of cargo units transported by the Group continued to grow significantly with 90,687 units of cargo transported in the quarter, which is 8.2% more than in the same period in 2017. In addition, the number of passenger vehicles transported by the Group also increased in the first quarter with 222,370 vehicles transported in the first three months, a 2.3% increase on the same period last year. 

    Commenting on the statistics, Veiko Haavapuu, AS Tallink Grupp’s Finance Director said: 

    „The number of passengers increased on almost all our routes in the first quarter of 2018, except the Finland-Sweden routes, where the retrofit and technical works carried out on one vessel meant that only one cruise vessel was operating on the Turku-Stockholm route instead of the usual two for nearly 10 weeks. Therefore, the decrease in the number of passengers on this particular route is not unexpected. Regardless of the overall decrease in the number of passengers by 0.5%, it is positive to note that our Estonia-Sweden and particularly our Latvia-Sweden routes are developing very well and the passenger numbers are increasing.“ 

    „The most positive development in the first quarter was the increase in the number of cargo units transported on all our routes, which was 90,687 units, resulting in an 8.2% increase compared to Q1 in 2017. The greatest number of units was transported on our Estonia-Finland route yet again and the number of units transported on this route increased by 12.9% in the first three months of this year compared to the same period last year. The greatest increase in the number of cargo units transported was on the Latvia-Sweden route with a 62.6% increase compared to Q1 in 2017. Such significant increases, of course, always have specific reasons and in this case, the reasons were the addition of a second vessel to the Latvia-Sweden route only in December 2016 and the planned renovation and technical works on the two Latvia-Sweden route vessels in the first quarter of 2017. This means the route was still in a recovery phase in early 2017, “ Haavapuu explained. 

    „The increase in the number of passenger vehicles transported on nearly all our routes by a total of 2.3% also needs to be highlighted as throughout 2017 we witnessed a marginal decrease in this number compared to 2016 figures. It is worth noting that the number of passenger vehicles transported in the first quarter of 2018 is greater than the number of transported passenger vehicles both in Q1 in 2017 and Q1 in 2016,“ Haavapuu concluded.
