MSC’s Terminal Investment Limited (TIL) has completed the acquisition of Terminal Darsena Toscana (TDT) in the Port of Livorno, Italy.

TIL subsidiary CSM Italia Gate will buy 100% of the share capital of Gruppo Investmenti Porutali (GIP) Darsena Toscana terminal for an undisclosed sum.

The move marks “a very important fact for the port and for its development prospects”, underpinning “the importance of the port of call in the strategies of the operators and rewards the goodness of our planning and design activities carried out over the years,” said Luciano Guerrieri, President of the Livorno System Authority.

The acquisition doubles up MSC’s presence in Livorno, as the group led by the Aponte family also controls 50% of the Lorenzini Terminal in the Labronico airport.

The Darsena Toscana terminal began its activity in 1997 and in 2012 it became part of GIP. It is the leading Italian terminal for reefer cargo, and the first in Italy to be equipped with an electrified direct connection to the national railway network, without intermediate handlings
