ODESA, FEBRUARY 4th, 2013, CONTEXT-PRICHERNOMORIE ― The container handling has increased and oil cargo handling has decreased in the Odesa sea port in January 2013, Context-Prichernomorie correspondent reports.

According to on-line data of the main control room of the port of Odesa the volume of cargo handled at the berths of the port in January this year totalled 1.72 million tons.

Growth of dry cargo handling, such as grain, ore, perishables and containers was noted. Total volume of dry cargoes totalled 1.43 million tons, which is 7.1% higher than in the first month of 2012. There is also a positive trend in container handling in January: 35 thousand TEU (+5.7 thousand TEU, or + 19.6% compared to January 2012).

The bad news is connected with continued decrease in liquid cargo handling. In total in January oil handling amounted to 291.7 thousand tons (-362.1 thousand tons, or — 54% compared to January 2012). The main reason for the recession is reorientation of transit cargo of crude oil and petroleum products of Russian and Kazakh origin to the Russian ports.
