In the first six months of 2021, traffic in the port of Civitavecchia grew by +20.8%

The trend of cruise traffic is still negative with a total of 75 thousand passengers (-56.6%)

In the first six months of 2021 the ports of Civitavecchia, Fiumicino and Gaeta have handled about six million tons of goods, with a growth of +13.5% compared to the first half of the year 2020. The Port System Authority of the Tyrrhenian Sea Center The North has made it known that, in relation to the port of Civitavecchia where the overall traffic has grown by the +20.8%, for various goods only, the increase is +21.1% with 2.45 million tons of rolling stock (+23.8%) and 464 thousand tons of containerized cargo (+8.9%). Liquid bulk, essentially refined products, they increased by +7.6% being amounted to 374 thousand tons, while the increase in bulk solid has been more consistent having been handled 1.05 million tons (+25.3%), including 803 thousand tons of coal (+23.1%), 161 thousand tons of products metallurgical (+41.5%), 11 thousand tons of raw minerals (+211.3%), 9 thousand tons of chemicals (+112.3%) and 69 thousand tonnes of other solid bulk (+9.0%).

The AdSP specified that in relation to passenger traffic line was recorded an increase of more than 34% for a total of 277 thousand passengers, while still negative is result of the trend of cruise traffic with a total of 75 thousand passengers (-56.6%).

«The recovery of more than 20% of the total tonnage of trades compared to the first six months of 2020 - commented the president of the AdSP, Pino Musolino - clearly indicates how the Lazio's port system, with particular reference to Civitavecchia, but also in Gaeta, has taken the road of the recovery, not only on passengers, who are still paying for the effect Covid on cruises, although the sector has restarted to global level right from here, but especially with regard to goods. The data on the containers in fact must not deceive and indeed I consider it very positive: in fact, only the empty, while the tonnage of full containers grows. this given, less teus more tons, less empty fuller, is the clear testimony of an important change in act: the port of Civitavecchia is finally becoming a gateway for containers and no longer a simple "parking of exchange" of containers. A clear sign that our action begins to bear fruit and that the market begins to notice of the potential and competitive advantages of our stopover'
