Naples - With the arrival of the J olly Palladio, which arrived on Tuesday, July 16th at the Co.Na.Te.Co/Soteco terminal, the ships of the Genoese group Messina have finally returned to the port of Naples as promised, a port which the group abandoned five years ago in favour of Salerno, after almost a century in the port of Naples.
Messina ships called continuously at the port of Naples from 1921 to 2013, when the company decided to move to the nearby port of Salerno due to various operational problems (long waiting times and shallow channel depths). Obstacles that the Genoese shipowner is now convinced are in the past. For this reason, Messina has decided to return to Naples and take up “the challenge of creating - together with the Co.Na.Te.Co./Soteco terminal (which belongs to the MSC group to which it is tied by increasingly close and profitable relationships of corporate and operational collaboration) - forms of synergy that translate into really first-class service for Messina’s customers in central and southern Italy.”
“Our group is successfully moving through a period of complex change and repositioning. In the future we will not be able to do without important alliances or the ability to hold onto those values in our history that still make our group one of the most important Italian shipping companies,” commented Ignazio Messina, the CEO of the family company and Vice President of the Messina Group.
