During the first six months of the year, the Port of Barcelona registered a total traffic of 28.6 million tons of cargo, 18% more than the previous year, in line with the first quarter of the year. These results are the best ever in history for a first semester.
The figures for these last few months are explained by three segments: the container traffic, the bulk liquids and the transported loads. Furthermore, the imports of containers have achieved their best figures since the period prior to the crisis.
Moreover, the shipping company MSC has announced that it will open 5 new maritime lines, which will connect Barcelona with destinations such as India, the United States of America, Canada or Brazil.
