Raffaello Cioni, Contship Italia Maritime Commercial Director, participated in the panel “Intermodal and Maritime infrastructure: shifting focus from ports to the entire supply chain”. The speech highlighted the growing importance of considering the logistics systems as a whole, and emphasizing the need to broaden the industry perspective on supporting the entire port-to-door offer, through a higher specialization and a better integration of data and services.
“Participating at the forum, says Raffaello Cioni, has been very stimulating, and allowed us to compare ourselves with the new trends in this complex and multifaceted world of global transport. The “port-to-door” approach to the Italian and southern European markets - possible thanks to the Group’s intermodal connections and thanks the Ravenna and La Spezia gateway ports - represents Contship Italia’s effort to improve the customer supply-chain. Our founder, Angelo Ravano, launched the company in 1969 with the “We bring the ship to your factory” motto. This motto is still valid to this day, as proved by today’s conference.
