The Finnish ports of Helsinki and Hanko, and the Croatian port of Zadar, have signed up to ALIS, the Italy-based Logistics Association for Sustainable Intermodality
ALIS was set up three years ago, based in Rome, Italy and its first president is Guido Grimaldi (left), of Grimaldi group. The association claims to have 1,430 member companies, including shipping companies, road haulage companies, railway companies, terminal operators and freight forwarders.
"I am proud of the growth of ALIS and its network," said Giulio Grimaldi, !and I’m even more pleased that our daily commitment produces benefits not only in Italy but also in the rest of Europe. The adhesion of the Port of Helsinki, including Vuosaari, and Hanko, just a few days after the accession of the Croatian port of Zara* pushes us to continue to invest in the further internationalisation of our cluster."
* Zara is the Italian name for Zadar. The Port of Zadar is best-known as a cruise destination.
