A downturn in Genoa’s port traffic

by Port News Editorial staff

4.2 million tons of goods and a downturn of – 4.1% compared to the same month of the previous year. Genoa Port’s recovery still seems to be a long way off: the Western Ligurian Port Network Authority’s Planning and Development Department’s data say so.

The results also show a decline in container traffic. In the second month of the year, 202 thousand TEUs (-2.8%) were handled.

In the first two months of 2019 Lanterna port totaled 8.74 million tons of goods, with a drop of -3.7% compared to the first two months of last year.

Passenger traffic only amounted to 158 thousand people (-9.2%), with both ferries and cruise ships down by -12.9% and – 4.2% respectively.
