The “Ocean 3” alliance announced that Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) will be added as direct port of call on the weekly service to Far East offered by CMA CGM, Uasc and China Shipping from Trieste. The first departure with the direct call is scheduled for March 15th. With a transit time of 13 days the service will improve current possibilities via Trieste to the Middle East region, providing another quick and competitive solution for markets in Central and Eastern Europe.

After the announcement given in November, the rail shunting activity optimization in the Port of Trieste is completed and in operation since January 2016. All shunting activities of the Port are now carried out by Adriafer (a Company belonging to the Port Authority), allowing a significant simplification on the steps required for trains arriving and departing from quays.

On January 22nd, Trieste Marine Terminal has introduced a monthly newsletter. Using as landing website, each edition of the newsletter will provide valuable information on Port of Trieste, maritime services, intermodal connections, private and public investments and more updates on container traffic. TMT's target in producing the newsletter is to share the information about current results and future goals and keep all customers and operators informed about the core business and latest developments of the Container Terminal as well as the Port of Trieste in general.

Trieste confirms itself as first port in Italy for total cargo volumes in 2015, moving 57,16 million tons of cargo (+0,07% compared to 2014) during the course of the year. To confirm this growth, ongoing efforts will be focused on intermodal and railroad traffic.

With effect from December 2015, the Maersk and MSC - Alliance (2M) implemented a new direct call to Yokohama on their AE12/PHOENIX Far East service from Trieste. With a transit time of 37 days in export, the new connection finally offers a competitive and valuable solution for cargo bound to Japan in addition to the traditional Japanese calls. In Trieste, the weekly service is directly linked to the departures and arrivals of our intermodal services to/from Germany, Hungary and Austria in order to provide an optimized total transit time solution for the respective markets of reference.

A new direct weekly rail connection has been established between the KTB Terminal of Burghausen and the Container Terminal of Trieste.

The connection has been established to serve Wacker Chemie AG in Burghausen (Bavaria), one of the major German chemical companies. Wacker will route via Trieste Marine Terminal part of their cargo bound to several Mediterranean, Middle East and Far East destinations.

Trieste Marine Terminal receives the ITALA Italian Terminal and Logistic Award as the Best Italian Container Terminal of the Year. The awards have been assigned during the fair Piacenza Expo, that was joined by main representatives and operators of the logistics and transportation sector. The jury of experts has based the final decision on the special characteristics, steadily increasing performance during the past ten years and ongoing investments plans of Trieste Marine Terminal.

On Monday 27th a delegation of operators from Bavaria visited our terminal. The delegation has been guided by the Shipping Agents and Freight Forwarders Association of the Port of Trieste through the terminals of the Port and had the chance to directly exchange information with the port and rail operators especially about the several intermodal services linking Trieste with Bavaria and Germany.
