Terminal Contenitori Porto di Genova S.p.A., also known as SECH, has been managing the Calata Sanità terminal since 1993. Over 300,000 TEUs handled annually, and a handling capacity of 550,000 TEUs, set SECH amongst Italy’s leading gateway container terminals.
The company benefits from its certified status as AEOF (Authorised Economic Operator Full), and operates in compliance with OHSAS 18001 and ISO 9001:2008, and in accordance with the ISPS Code (International Ship and Port Facility Security Code) and the C-TPAT (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism).
SECH is equipped to handle refrigerated containers, offering 246 reefer plugs, and with plans afoot to install reefer racks by 2019. The terminal excels in terms of speed and reliability, and guarantees meticulous handling of reefers for maximum freshness. In fact, SECH has successfully capitalised upon its favourable position, easily accessible both by sea (vessels dock in less than one hour after having entered the port), and overland, with direct connections to the rail and motorway network (500 m from the motorway exit). This strategic location, together with ongoing investments in human resources, handling equipment and IT, makes the terminal a cutting-edge facility in place to serve the major industrial and consumer areas in Northern Italy and Southern Europe. Refrigerated and frozen cargo will reach customers swiftly and in optimal conditions.
Further to a complete refurbishment of existing cranes in 2010/2012 to cater for vessel upsizing requirements, the company has embarked upon a second programme of investments to upgrade four of the five super post-Panamax gantry cranes to a 20-row outreach to equip SECH with the capability of serving vessels up to 14,000 TEUs.
