Contship Italia has appointed a new general manager at its flagship container terminal at La Spezia, Italy.
Alfredo Scalisi previously held the role of deputy manager at Gioia Tauro for the Medcenter Container Terminal (MCT) up until May 2019 and he officially began his new role on July 1.
Scalisi will report directly to the group president Cecilia Battistello, who is currently covering an interim corporate role as managing director of operations and sales of Contship Italia group.
Battistello said: “Scalisi has assumed a very important position at La Spezia during a moment of major change and transformation for the shipping industry.
“La Spezia Container Terminal is playing a key role in this ongoing transformation and we shall continue to support our customers with a range of terminal and logistics services delivered with the highest quality.”
The terminal operator is currently in the midst of a significant investment programme at the La Spezia facility, which includes increasing both the quay and rail capacity.
