Montel quoted Antwerp port authority as saying that coal handling at Europe’s second-largest port surged five-fold in the first three quarters of the year, amid a lack of storage space at neighbouring ports and stock building. The Belgian port handled 2.1m tonnes of coal, compared with less than 400,000t in the same period last year, with coal accounting for more than 20% of all dry bulk volumes.

The authority said that “The strong increase in the volume of coal was partly due to a temporary shift in transport routes as a result of low water levels on the Rhine.”
