June container record throughput in the Port of Genoa Featured

June container record throughput in the Port of Genoa
Container traffic increases by 11%. The upward trend reported in the second term of 2019 continues.
Genoa, 18 July 2019 – An all-time monthly record teu throughput registered in June by the Ports of Genoa: container traffic peaked, a total of 241,466 teus, pointing to the recovery already announced in the second term of 2019 (a +2.9% gain on last year’s comparable period), after a sluggish start.
The Port of Genoa handled 1,327,800 teus in the first six months of the year, close to the levels reached in the first half of 2018 (-1.2%), with a rise of 45,000 teus on the corresponding period of 2017 (+3.4%), a record year for the Ligurian port.
Genoa’s flagship container terminal, PSA Genova Prà, performed strongly, registering a total of 152,566 teus, that is, a +15.7% advance on June 2018, with traffic remaining stable compared to the first six months of 2018 and reporting a +8.2% gain on 2017. However, other box facilities also displayed fast growth: SECH handled 28,880 teus (+36.6%), whilst Spinelli-Genoa Port Terminal posted 34,566 teus (+2.8%). Transhipment accounts for 12.7% of total container traffic, in line with 2018.
The President of the Western Ligurian Sea Port Authority, Paolo Emilio Signorini, stated, “It is important to note that notwithstanding the uncertain global economic outlook, in part also linked to the US-China trade dispute which has led to a slowdown in traffic along the Far East maritime routes, the Port of Genoa is gradually overcoming the major setbacks suffered in the aftermath of the collapse of the Morandi Bridge and has convinced leading carriers to consolidate their shipping operations from the Ligurian capital: for instance, Hapag Lloyd has set up Southern European headquarters in Genoa and the Japanese carrier ONE has boosted its liner services to Asia, America and the Mediterranean. In addition, bolstered by the investments underway in the Ports of Genoa on the part of major global players, such as PSA, MSC, Maersk and Cosco, we are confident that the Western Ligurian Sea Ports will soon return rapidly to a path of growth.”
