Yilport’s San Cataldo Container Terminal in Taranto port hires workers

Taranto, Italy (PortSEurope) January 12, 2022 – In a positive start to 2022, the San Cataldo Container Terminal (SCCT) in the Port of Taranto has hired extra workers and welcomed unscheduled calls from containers ships. Following a meeting between the port authority, the trade unions CGIL, CISL and UIL, and concessionaire Turkish group Yilport, it was that announced that 10 will transfer from part time
to full time. A further 19 will be hired part-time and on a fixed-term basis. Whilst the numbers are not high, it is a positive sign in the relaunch of the terminal, which started with the new concessionaire Yilport in 2020. In a second positive development, this year, Taranto has received container vessels which were turned away by Malta Freeport because of congestion issues. CMA CGM, Maersk, MSC and COSCO have all sent ships to Taranto. Yilport owner Yildirim holds a 24% shareholding in the French logistics company CMA CGM. In just over a month 20 extra container ships will have been handled by SCCT in the Port of Taranto.
