Unions, container port of Cagliari at peak

Cagliari - With a net traffic loss of 72 in just three years, the Canal Port of Cagliari is literally sinking.

Cagliari - With a net traffic loss of 72 in just three years, the Canal Port of Cagliari is literally sinking. This is what emerges from a complaint-dossier made known by UilTrasporti Sardegna, which examines the traffic trend at Cagliari’s freight yard and analyses the problems that prevent Cagliari from succeeding, unlike what happened in Gioia Tauro (a terminal managed by Contship Italia itself) and the shipping world in general.

With 2015 figures showing the canal port of the Sardinian capital moved 686,000 TEU, in 2017 there was a decrease to 420,000, and the forecasts for the current year are only 190,000 TEU: -55% in one year.

For this reason, UilTrasporti - by making the dossier public and complaining about the incomprehensible attitude of Contship Italia, which seems to intentionally want to sink the port of Cagliari - is asking for an urgent crisis meeting to be held between the political institutions, employers and trade unions that can radically address the problems of the Cagliari terminal, in the hope that, in the coming weeks Minister of Transport Toninelli can address the dramatic situation in the port of Cagliari.
