Trade Statistics

 

Newcastle Port Corporation records the amount of trade imported and exported in both mass tonnes and revenue tonnes. Mass tonnes refer to the actual weight (in kilograms) of the commodity whereas revenue tonnes relate to the volume of the cargo (cubic metres or kilolitres) or weight of cargo, whichever is the greater.

This information is extracted from the manifest that is submitted by the vessel's agent for cargo on board a vessel.
