Rome, Italy (PortSEurope) November 5, 2021 – Federspedi Study Center has published its report Container terminals in Italy: an economic-financial analysis, a study of the economic-financial performance of the management companies of the main Italian terminals. It takes a snapshot of the performance of Italian terminals in 2020, a year marked by the Covid-19 coronavirus crisis. The report considers the performance of 11 port terminals*. Measured
by containers (TEU) handled, the 11 terminals totalled 8.58 million containers in 2021, compared to 84.44 million in 2020 and 8.16 million in 2019. These numbers account for 77-79% of the totals handled by all Italian ports in the same years. The overall positive number is down to three terminals’ traffic results. The Medcenter Container Terminal (MCT) of Gioia Tauro, controlled by MSC via Terminal Investments, recorded 3.19 million containers, up a high 26.6% on 2019 (2.52 million). Salerno Container Terminal saw the greatest percentage rise (+47.2%), recording 386,943 containers (262,935 in 2019). Naples’ Co.Na.Te.Co. recorded 526,808 containers (519,594, +1.4%). All other terminals recorded reduced TEU volumes in 2020, compared to 2019, including: Venezia Container Terminal 255,000 (-17.8%), La Spezia Container Terminal 1.08 million (-17.1%) and Voltri Terminal Europa (Genoa) 1.38 million(-17.8%).
