MAR­GINAL DE­CLINE IN S AFRICAN BULK EX­PORTS

Pretoria News - - THE X-FILES - | Helmo Preuss

BULK EX­PORTS de­clined marginally year-on-year (y/y) in Fe­bru­ary, while the num­ber of full ex­port con­tain­ers in­creased. As yet, there seems to be lit­tle dis­rup­tion due to the global coro­n­avirus pan­demic, although iron ore ex­ports – most of which go to China – did show a y/y drop in Fe­bru­ary. Bulk ex­port vol­umes fell by 4.1 per­cent y/y in Fe­bru­ary af­ter a 3.3 per­cent rise to 173.4 mil­lion tons in 2019, ac­cord­ing to ports data re­leased by Transnet Na­tional Ports Au­thor­ity. The num­ber of full con­tain­ers ex­ported grew by 14 per­cent y/y.
