Positive results in 2019 for the Port of Vienna
Good news about our ports
The Port of Vienna has published this month its figures for the year 2019, which proved to be a better year for the port than 2018 – a year marked by the low water level of the Danube which impacted the port’s activities.
Last year’s results prove the important position of the Port of Vienna along the Danube. Some notable numbers include:
- 376 000 containers were handled at the trimodal terminal WienCont;
- 100 cargo trains per week run between Vienna and other main logistics centres in Europe (4 trains per week run the Rotterdam-Vienna line);
- 340 000 passengers take part in river cruises;
- The port’s turnover increased by 7% and amounts to 36,5 million euros, making the Port of Vienna the biggest public port on the Danube.
These positive numbers compared to 2018 can be explained partly by the internal reorganisation of activities within the port. Investments made in recent years also contributed to the positive result, as 200 million euros were invested in digitalisation and overall modernisation of the port in the last ten years.
