AS Tallinna Sadam’s operational volumes for the 3rd and 9th quarters of 2022
In the third quarter of 2022, 4.4 million tonnes of cargo and 2.5 million passengers passed through the ports of Tallinna Sadam. Compared to the same period of the previous year, the number of passengers increased by 87% or 1.2 million passengers while the volume of freight decreased by 33%. At the same time, the number of ship calls was relatively stable, decreasing by only 4% to 1,936 calls. The number of passengers and vehicles served between the Estonian mainland and the main islands and the number of charter days of the icebreaker Botnica remained at the same level as the previous year, the utility rate of the vessel was 100 %.
According to Valdo Kalm, Chairman of the Management Board of Tallinna Sadam, the recovery in passenger activity continued vigorously during the summer, the number of passengers increased by 2.3 times in 9 months over a year, mainly with the support from Tallinn- Helsinki route and cruise passengers. “We are very happy that cruise ships continue to visit Tallinn despite the disappearance of Saint Petersburg from the cruise map. Today, we have managed to regain 70% of the pre-pandemic level in the passenger sector,” Kalm said.
In terms of cargo volumes, ro-ro and container volumes continue to grow, but overall cargo volume has declined due to sanctions imposed on Russia. The sanctions relate to the handling of liquid bulk and fertilizers (dry bulk).
Shipping volumes, i.e. the number of passengers and vehicles served by the ferries, as well as the number of charter days of the icebreaker Botnica, are stable at last year’s level.
