The report shows a steady recovery from Covid-19 and growth despite ongoing global challenges. In 2022, the Ports of Cork and Bantry reported a total consolidated traffic throughput of 10.2 million tonnes slightly lower than in 2021. The number of container twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) increased slightly to 282,781 TEUs (281,816 TEUs in 2021), primarily as a result of the commencement of new Con-Ro services linking Ringaskiddy directly with Europe. Imports of trade cars and dry bulks also increased which all offset small declines in liquid and break bulk traffic.
