An ambitious expansion project in 2016 will transform PSA Voltri Pra into the leading port in the North Tyrrhenian sea making it the perfect partner for the most prestigious shipping lines.

History

Since 1998 VTE is part of PSA INTERNATIONAL, one of the world's leading groups in container terminal activities.

The port of Voltri originates from a project of the former “Consorzio Autonomo” of the port of Genoa, today Genoa Port Authority, and has progressively developed starting from the seventies/eighties.

In 1992 FIAT Impresit, believing in the development potentials of Genoa, decided to set up a company offering port services– SINPORT.– acquiring from the Port Authority the concession to complete and operate the container terminal of Voltri.

Starting from 1992 the terminal has rapidly developed, achieving in a few years the present configuration. In parallel with the port development, VTE has grown in terms of activities and resources.

In 1992 the first cargo ferry called the port, in 1993 the first car carrier vessel and, finally, on May 5th 1994, the first container vessel. The growth process is supported by the increase in directly hired staff up to the present 700 units, the majority of which are young persons who have achieved in a few years high skills and competences through an intensive training activity. For this reason, VTE's staff is an important element of the terminal’s competitiveness.

VTE’s steady improvement has been widely appreciated by the market contributing to a high increase in traffic volumes up to approx 1.010 million TEUs in 2008.
