The Vado Port System in Italy is made up of two well integrated terminals: APM Terminals’ existing Reefer Terminal and its new semi-automated terminal, the Vado Gateway.
ith the launch of Vado Gateway in 2019, Vado Ligure became the first semi-automated port in Italy with a fully-automated gate and stacking yard.
Reefer Terminal is a fruit terminal on the Mediterranean Sea. Located in a customs bonded area, volumes of fresh products handled by the terminal have increased from 82,000 pallets in 1982, when it became operational, to around 600,000 pallets in recent years.
The terminal has 3 deep-sea Berths. The main quay is 470m long with 14.10m draft, the fruit quay is 240m in length with a 10.00m draft, and the RoRo berth is 200m long with 9m draft. The Reefer Terminal’s doors are only 50m from the quay, providing an optimal cold chain process.
The Vado Gateway Terminal opened on 12 December 2019 and is fully integrated with the existing Vado Ligure Reefer Terminal
