TMT shows volume increase during first semester 2016
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.
