GIP is a holding company founded in 1993 by four Genoese families, with the aim of becoming an active part of the logistics chain for containerized goods.
Over the years, GIP has grown considerably, focusing on its core business to become one of the first terminal operators in Italy, thanks to its majority stake in TDT Livorno and SECH Genova and minority interests in other important Italian container terminals such as VTE, Genoa and VECON, Venice.
In February 2017, the Group‘s entrepreneurial vocation was further strengthened with the entry of two specialized infrastructure funds – Infracapital and Infravia which acquired 95% of the owner-ship and which, through the implementation of organizational and procedural review processes, aim to further development of the Group through an ambitious expansion program aimed to developing and consolidating its presence in the competitive scenario of Mediterranean terminal operators.
On 22 July 2020, following the gree light from the Western Ligurian Sea Port System Authority, PSA Investments (PSA) and Port Investments Group (GIP) started the restructuring of their port operations based in Genoa. With this reorganisation, Terminal SECH and PSA Genova Prà, passed under the control of the new company built ad hoc, Psa Genoa Investments Nv, while TDT remains 100% managed by GIP.
The GIP companies carry out their activities with the aim of ensuring and increasing the satisfaction of their customers, in respect and in the interest of partners, collaborators, suppliers and port communities.
They operate according to principles of transparency, efficiency, fairness and a sense of responsibility, having as their primary strategic objective the protection of the health and safety of workers, the protection of the environment, the quality of the service product offered, the external sustainability of operations and ethics applied to personal and work relationships.
