Moby ARS New Terminal Auto Logistics (Manta Logistics), joint venture between Onorato Armatori and the German shipping and logistics operator ARS Altmann built for handling roro and new vehicles, was ranked respectively first and second in two new areas set to be granted in the port of Piombino but the procedure has been put now on hold by the local port authority.

The project presented by Manta logistics was to create a new hub for the shipment of new vehicles and to build up a 300,000 m² terminal for storing cars on the north dock of the port.

For this purpose Onorato signed an agreement with Germany’s ARS Altmann AG, one of the leading service providers of automotive logistics in Europe, and the investment in Piombino should be around €17 million.

The reason behind the decision to stop the procedure is linked to the surrender from Liberty Magona, which was ranked first to obtain some of the areas in concession.
