The general manager of Spediporto, Giampaolo Botta, has announced that the relative data to the activity last month, that they are found by an investigation lead on a champion of 15% of the associates and that they evidence bendings of the -5% of the export and the -9,8% of the import, confirm also for the shippers a trend negative already anticipated from the harbour operators and the same Authority of Harbour System of the Ligurian Sea Western that in recent days the data of a -20% of the harbour taxes has diffused and of a cargo reduction that, as testified from the terminalisti, has succeeded in some cases to touch one -25%.
