The Spanish Port of Santander closes the first half year with an increase in total traffic of 9.6% and 6.2 million tons of cargo.
It is the best half year of the last five years and represents a clear recovery of merchandise traffic since the drop experienced in 2016.
On the ferry side, the line from CLdN has driven the growth of the Margen Norte dock. In addition, ro-ro cargo moved by Brittany Ferries has increased by 8.8%.
Through its hub in Zeebrugge, CLdN links Santander with Dublin, Purfleet, Killingholme, Esbjerg and Göteborg.
Brittany Ferries has direct ro-pax connections between Santander and Cork, Plymouth and Portsmouth.
