TRIESTE - September data of Trieste Marine Terminal confirm the positive volumes trend recorded during the summer. The first 9 months of 2017 read over 410.000 teu handled at TMT, which bring the forecast for the whole year close to 550.000 teu.
Import volumes grew over 30 % and export more than 15% on year to year basis. The big majority of the first 9 months growth is still related to the significant development of the intermodal connections.

Good performances also for the connections to/from Munich and Austria (+44% and +16% respectively).
