In addition, the third quarter presents positive data for the ro-ro sector (+24,000 tonnes); it's the result best quarterly recorded since June 2019. The sector, too, despite the chronic decline in coal, shows some improvements: the third quarter is the best among those in the 2020 even if the values are not yet at the levels recorded in the third quarter of 2019. The same applies to containers, where sees an improvement trend in the third quarter of 2020 despite the values still lower than those of the year the previous one.'
