The offering of container services at the port of Venice is growing.
Yesterday, with the arrival of the Admiral Mars, a container ship measuring 126 meters long with a capacity of 800 TEU, the new container service connecting the lagoon port with some of the main ports in the Eastern Mediterranean, such as those in Israel, Egypt, and Turkey, began at the TIV terminal – Terminal Intermodale Venezia.
The new route, operated by the company Admiral Container Lines and which will also see another naval unit of 1000 TEU in service, will have a weekly frequency and will touch the ports of Venice, Haifa/Ashdod, Alexandria, Istanbul/Mersin, and Koper.
“With this new service, the strategic relevance of the commercial sector for our port is confirmed,” declares Fulvio Lino Di Blasio, president of the NASPA. “The activation of the new route, made possible also thanks to the professionalism and efficiency of commercial terminals such as TIV, in addition to proving the attractiveness of the Venetian port, will fuel significant traffic to and from the countries bordering the Eastern Mediterranean. The Authority must be ready to respond to the market’s needs and provide new opportunities to the entire regional and Northeastern industrial fabric, which boasts a strong vocation for exports. For this reason, we have launched the selection of qualified personnel in the field of ICT and Technical Management.“
