Contship Italia to add 1.8m teu

[ October 29, 2020   //   ]

Contship Italia Group, the Italian container terminal and intermodal branch of Eurokai, is to add over 1.8 million teu handling capacity under its business plan targets for 2021-2024. It will make substantial investments at its main La Spezia Container Terminal and will start work on a new 524-metre quay with five cranes at its Ravano terminal.

Short-term goals include the improvement of La Spezia’s capability to handle ultra-large containerships by dredging to 15 metres.

The new Tanger Alliance terminal (TC3) in Tanger Med 2 will start commercial operations in January 2021, deploying eight latest generation cranes. Once completed, the capacity will be 1.5 million teu.
