Ferry – freight: Total volumes in December 2022 were 15.2% below 2021. Volumes were 4.7% below 2021 adjusted for Channel that continues to be impacted by a considerable decrease in the total market and ferry overcapacity.
North Sea volumes were below last year, mostly due to a decline in activity between Scandinavia and the UK. The growth momentum in the Mediterranean network continued, although a temporary suspension of sailings between Turkey and Spain reduced volumes. Baltic Sea volumes remained negatively impacted by the war in Ukraine.
In 2022, the total transported freight lane metres decreased 2.9% to 41.7m from 43.0m in 2021. The decrease was 0.5% adjusted for Channel.
Ferry – passenger: The number of passengers continued to recover and more than tripled to 307k equal to 83% of volumes in December 2019, the latest comparable month pre-Covid-19. The number of cars equalled 81% of volumes in 2019.
In 2022, the total number of passengers was 3.8m compared to 0.9m in 2021 and 5.1m in 2019.
