Transshipment volume continues on a high level

Positive trend on the water

bayernhafen Aschaffenburg could keep cargo transfer on a high level in the last year. A total of 3.122 million tonnes of goods have been transshipped. This made up only a small decrease instead of the year before and the record volume in 2008. "Our diversified structure in branches and goods is reflected in a stable business of transshipment. Associated with steady investments we were able to resist the economic crises", explains port director Wolfgang Filippi.

Certainly, bayernhafen Aschaffenburg - part of the bayernhaffen Gruppe - could denote a significant plus in ship handling. Goods being transported on the water rose about 6 percent up to 860.000 tonnes. Due to a reflating economic activity notably scrap, gravel and cellulose had a growing amount of transshipment. Even the increasing shifting of beechwood transports on ship and rail caused a higher volume of transshipment. In contrast the handling on rail and truck had a little decrease. 215.000 tonnes were transported by rail (minus 12,6 percent), 2.047 million tonnes by truck (minus 1,3 percent).
