In 2019, container traffic at
Georgian ports increased by 42.7% - in particular, Batumi and Poti ports
handled 647,812 containers.
Poti port accounts for the
largest share - 531 731 containers, which is 46,1% more than in 2018. Batumi
port handled 116 981 containers.
This is record-breaking figure for
both ports with the total throughput of
650,000 containers, that means that in 2019 they operating at
almost full capacity. If growth continues in 2020,
the Georgian ports will either not be capable to handle the cargo, or will be paralyzed.
