Venice and Grimaldi Group at Transport logistic 2017 (munich)


12 May 2017 - The port of Venice plays a leading role at the Transport Logistic Munich "Transport Logistic", the world's leading trade fair for logistics, mobility, IT, and supply chain management. At the fair, the Port of Venice and Grimaldi Group, an integrated logistics multinational leading group specialized in the maritime transport of rolling units (car, van, trailer, etc.) have presented the maritime/rail intermodal services offered from/to Venice with origin and destination in East Med, Central Europe and Baltic areas. The Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax services to and from Venice have dramatically increased in 2016, and they are in addition to the recent return of the container line to Far East and to the consolidation of Intra-Med services that make Venice the first port Italian in the Adriatic for container handling (610,000 TEUs in 2016). But Venice is also recognized as the perfect gateway for break-bulk operators (in particular for the import/export of iron and steel products serving the Pianura Padana industries) and for project cargoes that today, departing from Venice, are exported to more than 50 countries around the world. “Only two years ago on this occasion we announced the entry of the Port of Venice into the Grimaldi Group's Motorways of the Sea network with the launch of the service to Patras. The results of these 2 years of partnership are very satisfactory, in fact the Group has increased its presence by extending and enriching the services offered. I am pleased to announce on this occasion that is on study a shuttle service to connect the Verona rail freight terminal to the Venice Ro-Port Terminal, allowing the operators in the sector to use the various connections with Germany and Eastern Europe thus creating a real bridge with Greece and the Balkans. All the activities developed by Grimaldi in Venice have a clear objective: the integration of maritime transport with railways in order to extend the intermodal routes for our customers” said Guido Grimaldi, Corporate Short Sea Shipping Commercial Director of Grimaldi Group.
