Italian ports fly in 2022

The situation of total uncertainty in which a large part of the Italian and European industrial sector finds itself due to the war in Ukraine and the energy crisis, does not affect an extremely positive trend, that of Italian ports which, for several years now have acted as a real driving force. for entire territories.
In this case, in this case, the Italian airports are recording a trend even higher than the giants of the Mediterranean and Northern Europe: volumes, in fact, as reported by Fedespedi, are growing significantly for what concerns the first part of 2022.
Let's see together, specifically, what it is ...

Italy is growing more than Europe

Analyzing maritime transport around the world, from the analysis we observe that in the first 8 months of the year there was a 1,6% decrease in container traffic, with a projection that, by 2022, should see a decline of around 1,5%, while at the same time there is an improvement in the reliability of services and a drop in freight rates.
In our country, in the first half of the year, the ports recorded an average growth of 7% for what concerns container traffic, with a jump from 5,54 to 5,93 million Teu, with the large ports in the north they are obviously shown to be dominant in this sense.
A very important figure for Italy, especially if compared - as mentioned - with other large ports in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe: on a continental level the most impressive decreases were seen in Valencia (-6,2%), Piraeus CT ( -9,6%) and Mersin (-5,1%), with the northern European giants which, with 22,7 million Teu, lost 3,8%, largely caused by the drastic drop in traffic on China routes and Russia.

Growth to invest in

However, the growth in freight traffic does not only concern sea routes: air routes are also growing, with a + 3,7% compared to 2021 which once again demonstrates how logistics are characterized as the absolute reference point of the country. able to cope first with the pandemic crisis, which lasted over two years and still not fully absorbed, then with the energy crisis in conjunction with the outbreak of the conflict in Ukraine, which has redesigned, as we have seen above, even the geography of logistics itself, with redesigned action plans and deeply different strategies than a few years ago.
The natural decline that will take place in the coming months must not discourage a sector that needs further push also with the PNRR, a resource to be exploited to increase infrastructure and aim for constant development that lasts over the years.
