Trieste Marine Terminal invested 4.5 million Euro
Zerbini confirmed having purchased 10 new reach stackers from CVS Ferrari
After a soaring 2018, Trieste container terminal stepped into 2019 with a series of new investments in last generation and high performing lifting equipment.
In essence, Trieste Marine Terminal, 50/50 controlled by MSC and TO Delta, has recently purchased 11 new reach stackers already operating at Molo VII.
CVS Ferrari announced the news while Fabrizio Zerbini, President of Trieste Marine Terminal, added: “The whole investment reached 4.5 million Euro and we were recently delivered 11 new reach stackers, purchased by Trieste Marine Terminal. The terminal also controls further 7 last generation reach stackers. Terminal operations, reliability and safety equipment will further improve, also providing better operating conditions”.
Reaching overall 626,000 handled Teu and nearly 15% growth versus former year, Trieste Marine Terminal established that in late 2018 they reached the best annual figures ever in containers handling at Molo VII.
“Major reasons are the group's consolidated role as gateway to Eastern Europe and the growth in railway capacity”.
Zerbini also added: “In the short term development, TMT targets handling increasingly larger ships (containerships currently reach 14.000 TEU) while also strengthening their role as gateway to/from the Mediterranean, also expanding the intra-Med services.
In 2018 Trieste Marine Terminal reached record breaking figures even in intermodal transport departing/arriving at Molo VII, recording over 3,200 trains and + 49.75 soaring volumes versus former year.
This was particularly due to the huge growth in Central Eastern Europe where Austria, Slovakia, Czeck Republic, Germany and particularly Hungary are driving the development with soaring figures from 70% to 130%”, concluded Zerbini.
