Likewise, container traffic also grew by 82.35% to a total of 55,579 TEUs handled and car traffic rose by 3.26%, to 168,866 vehicles. 

Containerised general cargo went up by 83.62%, to a total of 505.352 tonnes from January to November. Meanwhile, conventional general cargo decreased by 3.52% to 2,102,744 tonnes. This decrease was mainly due to poorer steel product traffic which fell by 5.76% to 1.64 million tonnes; though cars and their parts increased by 3.73% to 306,000 tonnes.

Container traffic consolidated its upward trend with an increase of 1.81% over the same period of the previous year. In total, 4,330,572 TEUs were handled this period. These positive figures were due to an increase in foreign container traffic, which rose by 4.18%. Specifically, containerized exports rose by 4.19% to 1,009,386 TEUs while imports increased by 4.16% to 1,011,764 TEUs. Transit traffic decreased by 0.18%.

Containerised general cargo recorded a rise of 2.58%, with total traffic standing at 49,288,001 tonnes. This growth is motivated by goods such as construction materials which rose by 0.53% to 4.84 million tonnes; other goods which went up by 5.21% to 1.94 million tonnes; and chemical products which increase by 9.56% to 1.65 million tonnes.

Solid bulk, with 1,090,710 tonnes, decreased by 0.37% compared to the same period in the previous year. Cement and clinker traffic went down by 45.22% to 290,000 tonnes; natural and artificial fertilizers rose by 20.18% to 312,000 tonnes; and finished construction materials increased by 2,181.02% to 234,000 tonnes.

Liquid bulk decreased by 5.07%, to a total of 2,195,363 tonnes. This decline was driven by the poor results of goods such as natural gas which fell by 5.23% to 1.96 million tonnes; and chemical products which decreased by 8.61% to 156,000 tonnes.
