COSCO Urges For Further Investments In Piraeus Port

According to a recent report:

  • COSCO Shipping served in total 26.7 million TEU worldwide
  • Traffic increased by 1.8% compared to 2019
  • COSCO is concerned about the fact that ports that were far behind Piraeus still competing. A typical example is the port of Tangier, which served 5.7 million TEU, operating three piers. Investments are being made in order to increase capacity to 9 million TEU.
  • COSCO is concerned because the Greek Government does not approve the construction of Pier IV that will increase the port’s capacity to 10 million TEU.
  • If Pier IV is not built, then Piraeus Port will lose customers as well as its geostrategic footprint.

On June 21, roro vessel ARMENISTIS (4.529gt/1972) of the Ainaftis Shipping Company (Kalimassias) arrived at Neos Molos (Drapetsona/Piraeus).

The former CTMA VOYAGEUR was at Avlis Shipyards (Chalkis) since March 12, in order to be repaired. On April 28, she was registered in Chios, while she is expected to be introduced in a North Aegean line. The small roro was built in Norway in 1972 as the ANDERIDA for Stena Line and purchased from Canadian CTMA in February 2020.
