TMT, containers and trains grew in February, but a temporary drop is feared

TRIESTE – Trieste Marine Terminal’s records of last month are still positive both in terms of container traffic and volumes handled by train.

In February, the growth in Teus was 6.9% compared to February 2019, while the volumes by rail increased by 9.75%, compared to the same month of last year. «So far, there are no repercussions with regards to the international emergency situation, because the ships that reached Trieste had left before the rise of the problems related to the Covid-19 virus» explains Fabrizio Zerbini, President of TMT. «Although, unfortunately - concludes Zerbini - a temporary decrease in traffic is to be feared in March and April».
