La Spezia Container Terminal performing well in the year of the Rooster!

LSCT comfortably handles a number of mega-containerships within the space of a few weeks as seasonal peak volumes start to flow through the Contship-system.


Chinese New Year 2017 means the year of the rooster - babies who will be born in this New Year are ‘fire roosters’ said to be trustworthy, responsible with a good sense of timekeeping. Roosters are said to be the most motivated animal in the Chinese zodiac.

Well, La Spezia Container Terminal certainly lived up to all these descriptions when it handled record volumes for a number of its customers following the peak demand in Asia leading up to the Chinese New Year festivities. Contship Italia’s regional gateway accommodated four A15-class containerships within the space of 22 days without any problem, handling in excess of 14,000 moves. Each ship measuring 368m in length, weighs in at over 150,000 gross tons and is capable of carrying 15,000 teus. Operated by UASC within the O3 Alliance, it is one of four weekly Asia-Med services calling at La Spezia.

We Bring the Ship to Your Factory” is now very familiar to our customers as LSCT continues to support the Italian importers and exporters answering their supply-chain needs. Check out our Connectivity Tool below for more information.
