We asked the Port of Hastings Development Authority to look into the discrepancy between the number of vessels we received and those you provided from their website.
They assured us that both are accurate. The number on their website is from the Port of Hastings Development Authority’s annual report and only includes import/export ships. The numbers provided to us by the Port includes cruise vessels and other non-cargo carrying vessels.
The 142 ships we quoted was an average of the past five years:
2013 - 2014 131
2014 - 2015 163
2015 - 2016 167
2016 - 2017 128
2017 - 2018 125
We hope this clears up the discrepancy. Thank you for highlighting this issue to us.
