The company, established in 1992, is owned by the Campostano Group and took over the Svenska Terminal which had been operating in Genoa since 1968.
The Group also has forest products terminals in Savona, and handles a total of approximately 500,000 tonnes per annum, ranking as one of the leading forest products handling companies in the North Tyrrhenian Sea.
The terminal has a total area of 15,500 sqm (7,500 sqm are covered). Water depth is 10 m alongside a 193- metre quay. The company has ISO 9001/2008 and OHSAS 18001 certification.

Since 2010 the company has been implementing a diversification strategy at its Genoa location, and the terminal is now also equipped to handle iron, steel and yachts, and to provide container stripping services.
