    During the first three quarters of the current year, Ukraine’s seaports increased their aggregate container handling volume by 15% year-on-year to 591,314 TEU, including 292,084 TEU of import, 277,026 TEU of export and 22.204 TEU of transit containers.

    The volumes of import and export containers handled over the period increased by 16.2% y/y and 11.7% y/y respectively, continuing the trend of the past several years to more imports in the overall mix.

    The "Big Odessa" ports (Yuzhny, Chornomorsk and Odessa proper) accounted for all container traffic, according to the Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority (USPA), a branch of the country’s Infrastructure Ministry.

    Port operators based in Odessa, Chornomorsk and Yuzhny accounted for 72%, 15% and 13% respectively of the total volume of containers handled between January and September 2018.

    Specifically, volume at Odessa increased by 14.4% y/y to 425,071 TEU, including 217,950 TEU of import (up 13% y/y), 188,929 TEU of export (up 22.9% y/y) and 18,192 TEU of transit (down 23.2% y/y) containers.

    Chornomorsk handled 88,733 TEU over the period, comprising 34,196 TEU of import and 54,537 TEU of export containers.

    Volume at Yuzhny increased by 57.3% to 77,185 TEU, including 39,875 TEU of import (up 73.7% y/y), 33,517 TEU of export (up 37.6% y/y) and 3,793 TEU of transit (up 380% y/y) containers.

    Last year, all the Ukrainian seaports handled 725,200 TEU, up 6.7% on 2016.

    Making up just 8% of the overall cargo tonnage handled by the nation’s ports, containers are the main driver for growth. New intermodal services link the ports with the key regional centres.

    The Georgia Ports Authority is on track to reach 4.36 million TEUs in 2018, its highest volumes ever in a calendar year.

    The performance would mean an increase of 8 percent, or 312,385 TEUs, compared to 2017.

    “Cargo expansion related to growth in inland markets, as well as increased demand right here in the U.S. Southeast have shifted the global logistics arena in Savannah’s favor, with more port users choosing to serve their customers via Georgia’s deepwater terminals,” said GPA Executive Director Griff Lynch.

    For the year through November, the Port of Savannah has handled 4 million TEUs, up from 3.72 million reported in the same period last year. The port authority informed that the containers currently booked for December are expected to add around 362,000 TEUs to the annual total.

    The Georgia Ports Authority achieved 11.4 percent growth in container volumes in November, handling 344,506 TEUs last month. With 151 vessel calls at the container port, Garden City Terminal averaged 1,322 container moves per vessel in November, which was the 25th consecutive month the GPA has posted positive year-over-year growth.

    Port officials predict brisk container business at the Port of Savannah moving into 2019. Several vessel calls were rescheduled from the end of November to the beginning of December. Combined with planned December trade, this should result in strong numbers to round out the year. Additionally, many carriers are expected to make above-average cargo exchanges in January ahead of the Chinese New Year celebration, GPA explained.

    Etihad has expanded its cargo capacity operating in the Spanish market as it looks to cater for the fashion, perishable, pharma and automotive markets in the country.

    In late November, the airline added a five-times-per week Airbus A330 service with 16 tons of bellyhold capacity.

    This operates alongside its daily Beoing 787 service to Madrid. In addition, the airline offers trucking services to gateways across Europe.

    The Barcelona service will increase to a daily operation at the end of March next year.

    Key segments for Etihad Cargo in Spain are fashion, perishable goods, pharma and automotive.

    Abdulla Mohamed Shadid, Etihad Airways managing director cargo and logistics, said: “Spain is an important global trade market with high demand for both import and export capabilities to key destinations across the Middle East and Asia.

    "Expanding our capacity into the market with the addition of services to Barcelona enhances our network with even greater focus on key global trade routes."

    Emirates SkyCargo completes five years of freighter operations to Ecuadorian capital Quito this December.

    The freight division of Emirates commenced its freighter operations to the Ecuadorian capital in December 2013 with a once a week service. And now with the growth in demand, the frequency has been increased. Currently, Emirates SkyCargo’s Boeing 777 freighter aircraft uplift cargo four times a week from Quito.

    Over the last five years, the carrier has been facilitating exports of Ecuadorian roses as well as other flowers and perishables through its Quito freighter service.

    Roses are one of the most popular export commodities from Ecuador and are renowned for their vibrant colour and long shelf life.

    Since December 2013, Emirates SkyCargo has helped transport over 50,000 tonnes of Ecuadorian exports from Quito. Fresh flowers including roses form the bulk of export commodities transported on the freighters. In 2017 alone, close to 12,500 tonnes of fresh flowers were flown from Quito to other parts of Emirates’ network in Europe, Middle East and Asia. High season for flower exports lasts between August and February but the peak demand for roses occurs in late January and early February in the run up to Valentine’s Day often requiring additional freighter capacity to be deployed to meet demand.

    More recently, Emirates SkyCargo has also helped promote the growth of exports of perishables such as mangoes and baby bananas from Ecuador to markets such as Germany, the Netherlands, Hong Kong and Singapore. With its global network of over 155 destinations Emirates SkyCargo facilitates the development of new export opportunities and makes an important contribution to the local economy in Ecuador where more than 100,000 people are dependent on the floriculture sector.

    With Emirates Fresh, the carrier’s three-tiered suite of specialised solutions, flowers and other perishables from Ecuador retain their freshness and longevity during their journey.
