In the second quarter, growth in the goods traffic in the port of La Spezia

Decided increase in activity also in Marina di Carrara

In the second quarter of 2021, freight traffic in the port della Spezia recorded a recovery of +16.3% which interrupts a negative trend in place consecutively in the six quarters history. In the period April-June 2021, in fact, the airport Ligurian port handled a total of 3.66 million tons of loads compared to 3.46 million in the corresponding last year period.
