28.8 million tonnes of goods were handled in the port city of Rostock last year. This was 200,000 tonnes or nearly one percent more than in the year 2016. This means the highest handling result achieved in the history of the port of Rostock. 26.9 million tonnes of freight passed the edge of the quay at Rostock overseas port alone. According to the port and shipping authority another 1.9 million tonnes were moved at the cargo and fishing port, the chemical port and other port facilities of the Hanseatic city. The number of ferry passengers carried on the lines to Denmark, Sweden and Finland increased by 200,000 to another top score of 2.5 million travellers.

While I can only respond with an answer based on my beliefs (I am not a lawyer, nor do I profess to being one), I believe that the answer in this case is “not really.” What has changed, however, involves the complexity of the risks that surround the master, particularly in the question of jurisdiction.
