The decrease should be mainly attributed to the fall of liquid bulk cargo handling

In January-May 2021, Russian seaports handled 340.55 million tonnes of cargo, down 2.7% year-on-year, says the Federal Marine and River Transport Agency (Rosmorrechflot).

The decrease should be mainly attributed to the 9.7-pct fall of liquid bulk cargo handling to 175.18 million tonnes. Meanwhile handling of dry bulk cargo rose by 6.1% to 165.7 million tonnes.

Throughput of seaports in the Arctic Basin fell by 5.7% to 38.72 million tonnes including 10.98 million tonnes of dry bulk cargo (-8.2%) and 27.74 million tonnes of liquid bulk cargo (-4.7%).

Throughput of seaports in the Baltic Basin fell by 6.2% to 102.30 million tonnes including 47.42 million tonnes of dry bulk cargo (+5.7%) and 54.88 million tonnes of liquid bulk cargo (-14.5%).

Throughput of seaports in the Azov-Black Sea Basin fell by 3.1% to 102.62 million tonnes including 43.76 million tonnes of dry bulk cargo (+6.1%) and 58.86 million tonnes of liquid bulk cargo (-9%).

Rosmorrechflot says the steepest fall was registered in the Caspian Basin – by 11.5% to 1.1 million tonnes of dry bulk cargo (-29.8%) and 1.99 million tonnes of liquid bulk cargo (-3.4%).

Throughput of seaports in the Far East Basin rose by 3.7% to 93.82 million tonnes including 62.11 million tonnes of dry bulk cargo (+10.4%) and 31.71 million tonnes of liquid bulk cargo (-7.3%).
