The PSA Italy magazine has grown, from today we will also publish material on the third PSA terminal in Italy: PSA Venice-Vecon.
Located in the port area of Marghera, Vecon started as an S.p.A in 1987 on the initiative of the local port authorities and remains the first private port enterprise authorised to operate in the commercial port of Venice. In 1997, it became part of the PSA International group, in an initial process of global acquisition that also involved the Voltri terminal at Genova, and in actual fact guarantees PSA access to the two main routes for containerised traffic in Italy along the Tyrrhenian and Adriatic seas.
Today, PSA Venice-Vecon is the main container terminal at the port of Venice and, thanks above all to its strategic position, remains the natural port of access linking the wealthy industrial hinterland of north-eastern Italy with the Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle and Far East.
The terminal has four Panamax gantry cranes with an operating area of 28 hectares and 852 metres of quayside, which makes it possible to develop a yard capacity equivalent to 430 thousand TEUs per annum.
PSA Venice-Vecon is not just about loading containers aboard ships. In fact, during recent years it has successfully activated a wide range of subsidiary services for shipping companies and for cargo and its handling within the terminal’s spaces.
Above all, this has been made possible by the fruitful relationships with the transport companies present within the territory who recognise in the terminal a reliable partner capable of quickly identifying innovative solutions, and a point of reference for logistics in the Port of Venice.
During the course of the coming months, we will have the chance to talk in more detail about PSA Venice-Vecon and the wide range of services it offers.
