Vado Ligure, Italy (PortSEurope) April 23, 2018 – The ability to accommodate ships of all sizes and capacities, including the large-scale container ships of the latest generation, and the huge availability of covered warehouses in the vicinity, are the main characteristics that have led China to invest in the new container terminal in Vado Ligure, controlled by APM Terminals with 50.1% and participated by the Cosco group with 40% and the Chinese port of Qingdao with 10%.
Zhang Gang, vice president and general secretary of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade in Italy, visited the port only two days after the private visit of the president of the Liguria region Giovanni Toti last week. Accompanied by Paolo Cornetto, managing director of APM Terminals Vado Ligure, Zhang visited the Reefer Terminal in Vado Ligure and then verified the progress of the work of the container platformand the landing of a crane provided by the Chinese manufacturer ZPMC, represented for the occasion by Elio Crovetto, CEO of ZPMC Italia.
Zhang was impressed by the total absence of limitations on draft and the quay of the future terminal, which will open next year and will be able to accommodate container ships of any size, but also by the fact that the covered warehouses of the Reefer Terminal, together with those of the nearby Interport VIO, constitute an integrated logistics hub.
