Piraeus automobile traffic row

Grimaldi Group and other PCTC operators have objected to a 34% increase in tariffs for finished car traffic introduced by Piraeus Port Authority with effect from the middle of March

The measure has prompted a strong reaction from various operators who use Piraeus to deliver cars to the Greek market and they are backed by the ECG (European Vehicle Logistics Group).

Grimaldi Lines has sent an open letter to the PPA protesting the increase and describing the move as "uncaring of the interests of operators and car makers." It is considering transferring its business elsewhere, subject to receiving the OK from its customers.

However, in the past few days, PPA has defened the tariff increase, pointing out that the rise – its first in several years – applies only to cars unloaded for the local Greek market, or 25% of the traffic, and not to the 75% of cars for which Piraeus is the transhipment port.

In 2017 the Piraeus car terminal handled 431,157 cars, 19.13% up on 2016 (361,912), of which 331,832 in transhipment for other ports in the Mediterranean (+ 22%).
