Hundred millions and ten thousands
Tanger Med handled 7,173,870 teu in 2021, a 24% rise in container throughput compared to 2020. Almost 11,000 vessels called in 2021, up by 12% from the year before, with the Tanger Med port complex handling more than 101 million tons of goods (+25%), a new record.
This traffic also results from the upturn in Tanger Med 2 port after the commissioning of the TC3 terminal in 2021. Ro-ro traffic amounted to more than 400,000 trucks (+14%) and almost 430,000 new vehicles moved through the two vehicle terminals at Tanger Med port in 2021 (+20%).
Liquid bulk traffic also grew by 9% to 8.75 million t of hydrocarbons processed, while solid bulk traffic recorded more than 340,000 t (+13%). The port complex welcomed nearly 929 mega-ships (over 290 m in size) last year. (sh)
