Container Throughput Index of the RWI-Leibniz Institute for Economic Research and the Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics (ISL) reached 123.4 points in May, an increase of 1.1 points from 122.3 points in April.

More specifically, it marked the fourth consecutive month of growth in container throughput. At the same time, it has not yet reached the level of the summer of last year.

Additionally, the expansion of container throughput was strong in Chinese ports. In particular, the index increased to 140.5 points in May from 136.4 points in April.

On the other hand, box throughput in European ports fell again after a strong increase in April.

The North Range Index of European ports on the North Sea fell from 108.4 points to 104.1 points in May.

However, there are now signs of stabilisation in container throughput in Europe.
