TDT began its activity on January 1st 1997 and since 2012 is part of GIP, Gruppo Investimenti Portuali S.p.A.
Its strategic position from the logistical point of view, with easy access by road and rail and a maximum annual operational capacity of 900,000 TEU make TDT the reference container terminal in the Port of Livorno.
In addition to being the port serving the markets of central and north-eastern Italy, or the ideal outlet to the sea for a large hinterland consisting mainly by Tuscany, Emilia Romagna, Veneto, Marche and upper Lazio, TDT represents the key point for access to European markets, playing an important role for the American (USA in particular) and West African markets.
In recent years, TDT has also taken on a significant role as a transhipment port for cargoes from the Americas to the East Med and vice versa.
Located in the heart of the industrial port, in the immediate vicinity of the Interporto A. Vespucci and the G. Galilei International Airport of Pisa, TDT is directly connected to motorways (A11, A12) and highways (SGC FI/PI/LI).
In December 2016, the inauguration of the direct connection between the terminal and the Tyrrhenian railway line, the first case in Italy, made it possible to eliminate the passage of goods in the Livorno Calambrone sorting station, thus guaranteeing reduced transit times as well as greater reliability of timetables.
Livorno is the largest italian port for refrigerated cargo and among the main ones for project cargo from the north-east and central Italy areas. The terminal has consequently been equipped with structures and areas dedicated to reefer containers, with 890 outlets (of which 80 in the verification area) and to the operations of various goods, managed by specialised personnel.
In 2020 TDT became the main terminal owned by the GIP group following the transfer of the corporate management of Terminal Contenitori Porto di Genova SECH from the GIP group to the PSA group.
