Hong Kong tonnage and container throughput set to grow


The port of Hong Kong holds top position in Hong Kong's maritime sector in terms of both total tonnage and container throughput, according to a recent report from Business Monitor International (BMI).

According to the ‘Hong Kong Shipping Report’, Hong Kong will demonstrate growth in 2014, after its 2013 performance suffered from a range of factors, including a 40-day strike, recession in the Eurozone, sluggish US growth, a slowing Chinese economy, and other factors.

Hong Kong’s tonnage throughput is forecast to grow 2% in 2014, with a medium-term projection of 13%; its container throughput is forecast to grow 3% in 2014, with an 11% increase projected over the medium term.

BMI also highlighted Hong Kong’s long-term expansion plans to ensure it remains among the world's top ports.

The report’s analysis comes on the back of rising demand for Chinese goods from the US and Europe.
