Trieste Marine Terminal receives Award as the best Italian container terminal of the year
TRIESTE – Trieste Marine Terminal received the “Italian Terminal And Logistic Award” last week in Piacenza, for its excellent container handling at Pier VII. The jury of experts assigned the award with the following criterium: "The container terminal in Trieste has witnessed a constant increase in traffic during the last 10 years until receiving at last, the services of 2M, Ocean Three and CKYHE, the three most recognised worldwide organisations. TMT has developed a plan to double the capacity of Pier VII thanks to an upcoming investment of 188 million Euro".
"TMT is the only Italian container terminal with international traffic”, said TMT President Fabrizio Zerbini, during his speech relevant to the award. “The terminal’s range of operation extends 5-600 km to the North and the East from Trieste. This requires efficient harbour services and an important network of railways and for this reason Trieste Marine Terminal has different characteristics than terminals that serve national markets. TMT also faces more complex problems, and requires to present services in line with Northern European standards”.
