In March volumes were up by 1.1 per cent to 368,000 tonnes, with exports growing by five per cent and transhipments were up three per cent. Despite the growth in March, volumes for the first quarter are down 3.5 per cent to 987,000 tonnes and have declined by 1.4 per cent to 4.34 million tonnes on a rolling 12-month basis.
