The port of Trieste has awarded a 19-year concession for the operations of Molo VI to the Samer Seaports and TIMT (45-55% joint venture between Samer and Ulusoy) combination.

This is the site of the concession held by Europa Multipurpose Terminal until 2022.

TIMT (Trieste Intermodal Maritime Terminal) previously operated at Molo VII but as this will undergo civil engineering works in the future, an alternative was needed.

The new concession covers ro-ro operations for Ulusoy Sealine’s maritime link between Trieste and Cesme (Turkey).

Ulusoy deploys five ro-ro ships, with 4,100/2,760 lane metre, or 283/165 trailer capacities.
