Hapag-Lloyd, 49% of the Spinelli group of Genoa- Corriere.it to the German giant

Hapag-Lloyd enters the port of Genoa. The German company will become a terminal operator in the port of Lanterna after the acquisition of 49% of the Spinelli group. The German giant had been watching the terminals with interest for some time. And in these hours the board of Hamburg would have given the ok to the operation that will lead to the signing of a specific memorandum in the coming days. Societe Generale was involved in the transaction as the “Sole M&A Advisor” of Hapag-Lloyd.

From what we learn, 45% of the Spinelli group, which manages the logistics chain of the container from the docks of the port to the final recipient, was sold to the Germans by the Icon Infrastructure investment fund. While a further 4% was sold by the Spinelli family, through Spininvest. The founders’ family still owns 51% of the group’s shares.

With this operation, Hapag will disembark in the port of Genoa, strengthening itself with respect to competitors including MSC by joining a growing group, which operates in several sectors from road transport to logistics and which has concession for the docks of the Genoa Port Terminal. The company founded in 1963 is currently chaired by Aldo Spinelli and also has Terminal Rinfuse Genova, the Derna Service Center, which deals with the management of goods warehouses in the port of Genoa, and the customs operator Saimare. To which is added a 30% stake in Salerno Container terminal, which manages loading and unloading services for both container ships and RoRo, which is a type of ferry designed to transport loads on wheels.
