In 1Q16 NUTEP container terminal handled 622,250 tonnes of containerized cargo (+5% compared to 1Q15). In twenty-foot equivalent units NUTEP container throughput reached 58,360 TEU, a 13% decline compared to January-March 2015 mainly due to the high base effect since the decrease in NUTEP volumes started only in March 2015. The growth of handling volumes in terms of tonnage reflects the growth in loaded exports.

In January – March 2016 KSK grain terminal demonstrated 73% growth of volumes handled compared to the same period of 2015. This was due to the low base effect of 2015 on the back of a slowdown of exports after the introduction of export duty.

General cargo handling in 1Q16 increased by 23% compared to 1Q15 and reached 50,781 tonnes.

Ro-Ro volumes decreased in terms of tonnage (-85%) and units (-73%) versus 1Q16 as a result of general decline of imports.

In 1Q16 bunkering fuel sales decreased by 58% compared to 1Q15 and reached 9,283 tonnes.
