COSCO Shipping Lines Italy critical of Genoa port

Genoa, Italy (PortSEurope) July 6, 2020 – The general manager of COSCO Shipping Lines Italy, Marco Donati, in an interview with Il Sole 24 Ore, has said that Genoa port is chaotic and shipping should use alternative ports. Donati said that the highways were almost blocked due to road works and containers cannot be collected by customers and are building up in the port. He
believes that customers will use other ports including La Spezia, Ravenna, Trieste, and Venice. In the last two years, both Genoa and Trieste ports have signed agreements with leading Chinese companies for their investment in the Italian ports. However, the realisation has not matched the expectations. At the same time, China’s COSCO Shipping Ports Limited, which operates Piraeus Port Authority and Piraeus Container Terminal, has been actively supported by the Athens government to implement its Master Plan, which is turning the Greek port into the largest in the Mediterranean region.
