Contship Italia quits Cagliari

Less than two months after selling its 50% share in the Medcenter Container Terminal of Gioia Tauro to MSC, Contship Italia has decided to exit Cagliari International Container Terminal, a big blow to Italy’s transhipment aspirations. Many jobs are expected to be axed when Contship leaves the Sardinian port.

While exiting the transhipment business in southern Italy, Contship, together with sister company Eurogate, have strengthened their position in Morocco, buying into Marsa International Tangier Terminals, where a new 1.5m teu terminal is expected to start operating next year.
