La Spezia, Italy (PortSEurope) March 4, 2021 – Mario Sommariva, President, Autorita’di Sistema Portuale del Mar Ligure Orientale (AdSP – Eastern Ligurian Sea Port Authority) has met with a delegation of union Trasportiunito, led by the coordinator Giuseppe Tagnochetti, to discuss the functionality and productivity of transport companies. Trasportunito asked President Sommariva for a clarification on the relationship between the main terminal operator Contship and the primary customer
MSC. There are rumours of possible changes in ownership of the terminal and the risk that La Spezia will fall behind Genoa (with large and ambitious development plans) and Livorno (intending to strongly relaunch the Europa dock project) is now particularly high. Also, some project ideas were advanced to the President for a real involvement of road transport in the field of digitalization, aimed at standardizing and rationalizing document procedures, streamlining gate in-out operations and traceability of the truck cycle in the eastern port. Trasportiunito also asked for information and also evaluated with the President the major issues that affect the future of the port, focusing attention on a schedule that defines the times for carrying out new port works, including dredging, lagging behind and the issue of logistic infrastructures with particular attention to those that affect the operation of road transport, as well as the strengthening of the retroportal area of Santo Stefano, within the framework of the ZLS also through a strong direction for the whole operation.
