In 2022 Q2, 4.7 million tonnes of cargo and 1.9 million passengers passed through the harbours of Tallinna Sadam. Compared to the same period of previous year, the number of passengers increased by 218% i.e. by 1.3 million passengers whereas the cargo volume decreased by 21%. The number of vessel calls increased by 6% to 1948 calls. The number of passengers travelling between the Estonian mainland and the main islands increased by 8% and the number of vehicles by 1%. The number of charter days of the icebreaker Botnica stayed at the same level as in the previous year, utility rate of the vessel was 26%.

According to Valdo Kalm, chairman of the management board of Tallinna Sadam, the beginning of summer and the holiday period have brought many passengers from nearby countries, especially on the Tallinn-Helsinki line, where the number of passengers has increased by more than 1.5 times. "The Swedish line is also on the rise, and more and more cruise ships arrive in Tallinn. Today, we have managed to recover to 65% of the pre-pandemic level in passenger volume, and the growth trend continues," explained Kalm.

There has been a shift in the structure of cargo types in terms of volumes - instead of liquid bulk, ro-ro cargo has become the largest cargo group, the growth trend of which continues. The decline in liquid bulk was mainly caused by the imposition of sanctions on Belarussian oil products from March and the Russian-Ukrainian war that started in February. The drop in dry bulk was caused by significant decrease in fertilizer handling volumes due to the sanctions imposed on the operator of Russian origin. There has been a substantial increase in container goods both in tons and in container units. The growth in container traffic comes from a low baseline previous year, when there was a global shortage of empty containers and disruptions in supply chains.

The operational volumes of Tallinna Sadam group for 2021 Q2 and 6 months are presented in the following table.  The data for the Q2 2022 are preliminary as of 04.07.2022. The final volumes for the period will be published in the following financial report.
