In the correction announcement the cargo type names liquid bulk and dry bulk have been exchanged on the rows in the table, the numbers on the rows remained the same.

In 2022 Q3, 4.4 million tonnes of cargo and 2.5 million passengers passed through the harbours of Tallinna Sadam. Compared to the same period of previous year, the number of passengers increased by 87% i.e. by 1.2 million passengers whereas the cargo volume decreased by 33%. At the same time, the number of vessel calls was relatively stable decreasing only by 4% to 1936 calls. The number of passengers and vehicles served between the Estonian mainland and the main islands and the number of charter days of the icebreaker Botnica stayed at the same level as in the previous year, utility rate of the vessel was 100%.

According to Valdo Kalm, chairman of the management board of Tallinna Sadam, the recovery of passenger business continued vigorously in the summer, the number of passengers increased by 2.3 times in 9 months year-on-year, primarily with the support of the Tallinn-Helsinki route and cruise passengers. "We are very pleased that cruise ships continue to find their way to Tallinn despite St. Petersburg's disappearance from the cruise map. Today, we have managed to recover to 70% of the pre-pandemic level in the passenger business," said Kalm.

In terms of cargo volumes, ro-ro and container volumes continue to grow, but the overall cargo volume has decreased due to the sanctions imposed on Russia. The sanctions affect the handling of liquid bulk and fertilizers (dry bulk).

Shipping volumes, i.e. the number of passengers and vehicles served by ferries, as well as the number of charter days of the icebreaker Botnica, are stable at last year's level.

The operational volumes of Tallinna Sadam group for 2022 Q3 and 9 months are presented in the following table.  The data for the Q3 2022 are preliminary as of 05.10.2022. The final volumes for the period may be specified and will be published in the following financial report.

*Ferry traffic volumes show the general demand for the service, but do not directly affect the financial results of the ferry segment, as the fee is fixed in the service contract regardless of the number of passengers and vehicles served.
