In the first half of this year Yilport has enlivened a record container traffic

The total has been pairs to 3,41 million teu (+36%)

In the first half of this year the port terminals managed from the Turkish Yilporto Holding Inc. have enlivened a traffic of the record containers of 3.41 million teu, with an increase in +36% on the first half of 2021. The company has announced that, in addition, general freight traffic grew of +6% being piled to 5,82 million tons and increasing there were also traffic in rolling stock (+3%) and bulk liquid (+10%).

In Italy the Turkish group is present in the port of Taranto through the San Cataldo Container Terminal (SCCT) branch that operates at the Multi-sector Pier of the Apulian port of call, an area that was entrusted to the company at the beginning of 2020 and on which it is difficult to resume the flow of traffic containerized that had reset at the beginning of 2015 after the Taranto Container Terminal, the then dealer that had been placed in liquidation, he had returned the terminal to the institution harbour. Restarting operations turned out to be more arduous than expected, so much so that the Port System Authority of the Ionian Sea recently urged SCCT, to which previously had communicated a warning for not having moved the levels of traffic envisaged in the first phase of the concession contract, reach within 24 months the annual traffic volumes scheduled for the first two years of the agreement, or 105 thousand teu and 245 thousand teu.
