Reconciling the DNA of a company historically rooted in a territory with the innovation demanded by a market undergoing continuous evolution. This was the challenge facing Livio Selva who, in August 2015, acquired Transtir Srl, an international shipping company based in Carpi, of which he is now chairman. Since then, Selva has forged ahead, adding two more targets to his reorganisation plan in quick succession: the take-over of the F.lli Meoni transport firm in Prato and the opening of a new branch in Milan. “Three bases located in the some of the main production areas of Italy where we are working with more than 60 professionals in the field,” said Transtir’s chairman. “A year of strong growth is behind us. Now we are focusing on gaining a widespread presence on national territory, but not only that. Thanks to an extensive network of correspondents, we are becoming established in the market at the European level.

“The combing of the ports of Genoa and Savona is the starting point for a major relaunch of the sector. A systematic approach is necessary to compete with the ports of North Europe.” Marco Cavalieri, owner and founder of Sinergy Cardo, together with Davide Onnis and Luigi Troianni, looks with optimism at the merger of the ports and sketches out the panorama of the challenges facing the sector in a continuously developing market.
