    THE Georgia Ports Authority achieved 14 per cent growth in March container throughput, moving 355,208 TEU. For the fiscal year to date (July-March), container trade was up by nine per cent for a record total of 3.08 million TEU at the Port of Savannah.

    GPA executive director Griff Lynch said: 'March marked our 17th consecutive month of business expansion thanks, in part, to a strong economy and growing market share.'

    Intermodal rail volumes jumped by 20 per cent in March and 15.4 per cent for the fiscal year to date, for a total of 318,454 containers handled over nine months - another record for the GPA.

    'As the numbers show, our rail cargo is growing at a faster pace than our overall trade,' GPA chairman Jimmy Allgood said. 'This is important because rail is playing a key role in our responsible growth strategy. We anticipate our rail infrastructure investments to take 250,000 trucks off the road each year by 2020.'

    The GPA has just broke ground on its Mason Mega Rail Terminal, on which the port of Savannah will build 10,000-foot unit trains within its own footprint. From the expanded rail infrastructure at Garden City Terminal, CSX and Norfolk Southern will provide direct rail service to major southeast and Midwestern markets from Memphis to St. Louis, Chicago to Cincinnati.

    In August, the GPA will open its Appalachian Regional Port in Murray County. Located in an industrial belt, including the production and export of carpet and flooring, automobiles and tires, the ARP will provide an alternative to all-truck transit to northwest Georgia. Each round-trip container moved via the regional port will offset 710 truck miles on Georgia's highways.

    March was also a strong month for roll-on/roll-off auto and machinery units at the port of Brunswick and Ocean Terminal in Savannah. Colonel's Island Terminal in Brunswick handled 66,144 cars, trucks and tractors, while Ocean Terminal added 4,050, for a total 70,194, a 17.2 per cent increase.

    Mr Lynch added that for the fiscal year to date, Mayor's Point breakbulk terminal in Brunswick grew by 44 per cent (34,515 tons) to reach 112,728 tons of forest products. At East River Terminal, bulk cargo expanded by 34 per cent from July-March (189,918 tons) for a total of 750,384 tons.

    Driven by a strong growth in the container volumes, the port of Antwerp recorded its best quarter ever with a freight volume of 58.3 million tonnes.

    During the quarter ended March 31, the port’s total volume, which increased by 7.1% on the same period last year, was pushed by a 9.5% surge in the number of containers.

    The container volume rose to 32.6 million tonnes, or 2.7 million TEU, with March alone setting a new record for container volume with 980,000 TEU.

    There was growth on all sailing routes, both for imports and for exports. The progress made by European container freight was the most notable, expanding by 14.5%.

    Container trade with North America for its part was up by 14.7% compared with the same period last year, although the first quarter of 2017 in this sector was rather weak. On Asian routes there was growth of 7%.

    “The current growth figures of 9.5% in the container segment not only confirm the need for additional capacity but also make it clear that the operational capacity limit will soon be exceeded and that an expansion in container handling capacity will become necessary much sooner than originally planned,” Jacques Vandermeiren, Port Authority CEO, said.

    The ro/ro volume expanded by 6% to 1.3 million tonnes, with the number of cars handled rising by 2.3% to 323,901 units.

    However, conventional breakbulk performed less well compared with the same period last year, falling by 3.1% to 2.5 million tonnes.

    Liquid bulk experienced an increase of 4.6% to 18.5 million tonnes. Dry bulk finished the quarter at 3.4 million tonnes, representing growth of 7.4%.

    Konecranes is set to deliver a Gottwald Model 7 mobile harbour crane to Italy's Terminal San Giorgio (TSG).

    The crane, which will be commissioned in June 2018 in Genoa, will handle containers, general and project cargo at the multipurpose terminal. It is designed to use power from the port's grid in the future, reducing energy consumption and eliminating exhaust emissions.

    The crane will be the terminal's second Model 7, with the first commencing operation in 2013.

    Maurizio Anselmo, managing director, TSG, said the high level of performance and reliability obtained from the first crane, plus the availability of a local Konecranes service team, lay behind the decision to invest in a second Gottwald Model 7 adding that "the two cranes will help us to fully exploit the potential of our terminal, which is the premier multipurpose terminal in the port of Genoa."

    The Model 7 two-rope crane, a G HMK 7608 variant, provides a strong lifting curve with a maximum lifting capacity of 150 tonnes, and an outreach of up to 54 m.
