Zeeland Seaports ends year on a positive note

Imports rose to over 25m tonnes, whilst exports reached 7.9m tonnes. Turnover of the port authority reached €46m (US$60m), resulting in a €6m (US$7.8m) operating profit being recorded.

Managing director, Hans van der Hart, is cautiously optimistic about prospects for the coming year. “With the pending privatisation of Zeeland Seaports and all the plans we and the companies in the port have, we will be entering 2011 full of confidence and should, in all events, be able to achieve the same results as those for 2010”.

The port authority will be privatised on 1 January 2011.
