Container throughput at leading French port Marseille Fos reached 956,999 teu for the first nine months, a 4% rise on January-September last year driven by 6% growth at the Fos deepsea terminals.

Box tonnage also rose 4% to 9.18 million tonnes, leading general cargo to 13.9MT (+3%).  The main support came from ro-ro traffic – up 5% to 3.06MT – which included 130,616 import/export vehicles, a 6% increase boosted by a 17% surge in September.
