Port volumes recorded a 7.7% rise in aggregate throughput in the quarter ended September 30, growing at their fastest pace since 2011, according to an Alphaliner report.

Through its survey, which covers more than 200 ports that account for over 75% of global container volumes, Alphaliner saw that the strong third-quarter growth figures surpassed the growth rates of the previous two quarters, which stood at 7.4% and 5.8%, respectively.

Full year growth estimate for 2017 has thus been adjusted upwards to 6.4%.
