Moby’s Fine from Italian Antitrust Authority to Be Recalculated

Italy’s Administrative regional court in Rome affirmed on Tuesday that the €29 million fine imposed in March 2018 to Moby by the Antitrust authority has to be recalculated.

The fine was the final result of an investigation which found that Tirrenia CIN and Moby, both controlled by Onorato Armatori, had been involved in aggressive anti-competitive conduct, aimed at hindering the growth of its competitors on the maritime links between Sardinia and Italy mainland.

The investigation followed a complaint filed by ro-ro shipping companies Grimaldi Group and Grendi together with the road hauliers Trans-Isole and Lucianu.
