After six months of negative data, the Statistical Bulletin of the Port Authority of Valencia (PAV) has displayed positive statistics in September.
The Valencian ports handled 6.3 million tonnes of cargo last month, representing a 2.09 per cent rise over the same month in 2022.
In parallel, the total volume of goods handled from the Valencian docks shows signs of stabilisation for the fourth consecutive month, with an increase in imports (7.76 per cent tonnes) and a moderate fall of 4.46 per cent in the number of containers handled (385,830 compared to 403,843 TEU in September last year).
According to the monthly figures supplied by the Bulletin, the increase in traffic in Valenciaport is attributed to an increase in the management of total general cargo, with the ‘non-containerised’ showing a 14.47 per cent increase and the containerised registering a 0.38 per cent increase.
On the other hand, the tonnes of bulk handled from the Valencian docks have fallen by 8.97 per cent compared to September 2022.
