TMT shows volume increase during first semester 2016
TRIESTE - Uncertain market situation and changing scenarios in the Shipping Lines Alliances did not affect Trieste Marine Terminal’s total volumes handled during the first semester 2016.
The January-June period closed with a +5,9 % in Teu and +10,1% in containers compared to the same period of 2015. This positive result is mainly due to a significant +9,7% on the full containers moved (with +19% of import cargo) and an increase on the transshipment cargo too.
The traffic in units grows even more, showing a slight change in the cargo composition with 20’ containers growth higher than the 40. The intermodal traffic contributes to the above mentioned growth with a +12,5 % (national and international trains) and represents around 33% of the total volumes moved via Trieste in the first 6 months of 2016. More details on the intermodal traffics are reported in a dedicated news.
