Reefer terminal

The port terminal devoted to handle fresh produce in the Port of Trieste, Terminal Frutta Trieste SpA or TFT, was recently acquired by the Samer Group but its business dates back to 1986, first under public governance, and since 1994 through private owners.
The terminal includes four berths, one Ro-Ro berth, a total of 51,500 square metres of warehouses, of which 18,200 are reefer ones, an open storage area of 30,000 square metres, and is directly connected via rail and road to the main Italian and Central/Northern Europe hubs.
The company imports fruits and vegetables mainly from Mediterranean countries, such as Egypt, Cyprus Turkey and Israel, plus Colombia, stocks them in its refrigerated warehouses and then distributes them to Germany, Austria, Poland, Hungary, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Such long-established traffic spans over eight months, from December through to July, and the company services include customs clearance and phytosanitary controls.
The second main business for the company takes advantage of the company’s LME (London Metal Exchange) and LIFFE (London International and Financial Futures and Options Exchange) certifications to its warehouses, allowing for the storage of non-ferrous metals, e.g. copper and aluminum, and coffee for trading purposes.
