Fruit and vegetables: growth in volume and value
Imports and exports via Italian ports
However, imports are doing better than exports. Export volumes fell by two-thirds from 3.5 million tonnes from (Jan-Oct 2016) to 3.3 million tonnes in the same period in 2017 (-5.6%). But exports are increasing in terms of value.
Imports increased both in terms of volumes (+9.7%, from 2.7 to 3.0 million tonnes) and in terms of value (from € 3.02 to 3.17 billion) during the same months.
Italian ports account for a large part of the import-export traffic in perishable products, and fruit and vegetables play a decisive role in this sector. Ravenna was the leader among Italian ports (estimated at about 3.5 million tonnes), followed by Livorno (2.8 million tonnes), Venice (2.5 million tonnes) and Gioia Tauro (2.4 million tonnes).
According to a themeditelegraph article, with regard to fruit and vegetables, the market has changed dramatically: the number of specialised fleets and terminals has drastically decreased, and a great number of products have shifted to reefer containers (according to the Federazione del Mare, the share of perishable goods travelling in containers is over 76%).
