Not to mention Italy’s long record in rolling goods traffic (RO-RO) as measured by AssoPorti Italia.
Livorno is also part of a multi-port system located on the north-west coast of the peninsula, which also includes the ports of Genoa, La Spezia and Savona. This system constitutes the most important marine gateway in Italy, connected by Deep Sea Shipping container routes to both the Far East and North-Central America.
Within the Tuscan-Ligurian port system, Livorno enjoys a privileged position in terms of cost-effectiveness and travel time for connections with some highly productive areas such as central and north-eastern Italy, as well as regions beyond the borders such as Austria, Bavaria, Hungary, Slovenia and northern Croatia.
For this reason, it is possible to affirm that Livorno boasts a hinterland that is composed of a vast area that can be served in a primarily competitive manner.
