Belfast Har­bour handled a record 24.6 mil­lion tonnes in 2018, rep­re­sent­ing 70% of all North­ern Ire­land’s seaborne trade and around 20% of the en­tire is­land. In re­cent years sec­tors such as ag­gre­gates, wind farm ma­chin­ery, freight, ferry pas­sen­gers and cruise vis­its have per­formed strongly.
