Genoa, Italy (PortSEurope) December 7, 2018 – Genoa port has lost approximately 9% of its cargo traffic since the collapse of the Morandi bridge in August, according to data by Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mar Ligure Occidentale (AdSP – Western Ligurian Sea Port Authority).
The data proves the adverse effect that the disaster had on the performance of the port, which faces a significant decline in its growth trend, albeit with different dynamics between the different segments.
The importance of the Genoa and Savona ports for the economic growth of northwestern Italy has been the main topic of the discussions on different institutional levels in recent months and laid the foundation of actions in support of the two harbours.
However, between the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019 the efforts will focus on the monitoring of the effects of the collapse.
