Duci: with the investments foreign countries in the harbour, marine field and logistic Italian is not in existence a colonization

The president of Federagenti explains because in his opinion they constitute a positive contribution

They are the almost sixty societies of the harbour, marine field and logistic Italian (and between these most prestigious and which rooted some between on the territory) that in the past decade they have been partially or totally acquired, or participated in meaningful way from international groups, is of the field financial is operating in the same marine section and trasportistico for a total investment in Italy that are estimated it can graze 3,5 billion euros.

The directory of these enterprises, that we publish below, is introduced today by Gian Enzo Duci, president of Federagenti, in its participation to sessantanovesima the assembly anniversary of the federation of the Italian shipping agents that has held to Porto Cervo, in Sardinia.

A list that some can interpret as a glass full means, others as a glass empty means. Duci is between first. According to the president of Federagenti, the field of the marine transports, the ports and the logistics of the transport, than from abroad places therefore to the first place in Italy between the sections object of investments, it is not field of invasion and cannibalizzazione but of a positive contribution of international investor.

Duci, that it has elaborated these data from an analysis that it has carried out in the within of its assignments near the University of Genoa, has observed that, between merger and acquisition, income of international trusts, public purchase offers, some between the greater brands of the shipping, the portualità, the spedizionieristiche activities and the Italian logistics are successful to attract international investor who, in the majority of the cases, have rooted in Italy their activities producing added value in Italy.

Duci has clarified because it considers that these participations foreign countries do not make of Italy land of conquest but nation that offers development opportunity: "it is in particular - it has explained - the result of these participations to only dissipate the suspicion that features of a solid operation of colonization. In the three next years to the participation of investor foreign countries - it has specified Duci - the Ebitda of the groups object of the participation, and of which they have been able to retrieve the data, has recorded a medium increment of 70%, in order then to attest itself in the years to follow on annual rates of growth of 5%".

The president of Federagenti has however specified that the globalization process has not been and he is not however painless for the Italian enterprises. In the analysis introduced from Federagenti it is evidenced as, in particular in the field shipping and therefore of the shipowning activities, the wind of the crisis has blown impetuous, being profitable indispensable in order more than 30 groups the resource to extraordinary measures of debt workout, and as, in some cases, the financial ruin financial has led in the failure.

Also in the world of the marine agencies the effect concentration that has revolutionized the field container, polarizing it on a limited number - not more than nine - than protagonists grouped in three alliances and in a position to sharing themselves more of 80% of the transported world-wide interchange in container, has caused a real change of identity of the great marine agencies, that they have become or of direct or joint venture property between the shipowning groups and the previously independent Italian operators. A process, this, that it could endure an ulterior acceleration if - as many experts preview - the group of the great players container will endure ulterior fusions and integrations.

Duci has evidenced that but from the analysis it emerges clearly as the foreign investments in Italy have created value when the participation has regarded not only asset physicists, but also the vital present human inside companies that, regarding the sections port and services, do not anticipate the offshoring risk. Moreover such process is not new for our Country, where already in the past decade some between the main national players of the field have seen the income in the capital of great international operators: from the acquisition of Lloyd Triestino, then renominated Marine Italy, by Evergreen, from the passage of the control of the greater terminal Italian container, that of Genoa-Voltri from the Fiat group to PSA of Singapore, until the cession to the American Carnival, of the most prestigious shipowning group and to follow crocieristico, Costa Crociere.
In these years the active participation of shipowning large groups in the marine agencies and the Italian shipment houses, as well as in the Italian harbour terminals, had begun to make to feel its weight also through the formula of joint venture.

For Duci, than the marine, harbour and logistic section directly exposed on the front of the internationalization and the globalization it has lived and it is living a phenomenon of "attraction" of international investments he is not in itself amazing and it is from reading itself as a demonstration of the value of the section. Paradoxicalally - according to Federagenti - such evolution could be one of the modalities in order to fully realize the potentialities of development of companies that, to vital Italian or Italian solo, would not have means in order to invest how much necessary one to the aim to place itself on markets where the dimensions are becoming more and more essential in order to compete.

Duci has found moreover that it must look also the other face of the medal, since the Italians are less not in the markets foreign countries: Italy - it has remembered - is the number on the international markets for the acquisition of companies in the field ferries, with two groups (Grimaldi Naples and Onorato) important protagonists international operations.
