Supply markets

The main supplying countries of the commercialized products are Libya with circa 70 percent and Iran with 20 percent market share. The rest 10 percent of business is covered by Slovenia, Romania and Algeria. Sourcing takes place via ship but occasionally via railroad, depending on the geographic areas interested in the product. The ships are rented taking account of the peculiarities of every port of destination, in terms of draft restrictions and dimensions of jetties, the characteristics of terminals, paying special attention to the discharge rate and to the capacity of storage, let alone the specific customers requirements.

The main outlets in Italy are:

In the Tyrrhenian sea are the ports of Genoa and Livorno.
In the Adriatic sea are the ports of Ravenna, Marghera and Trieste.
In the islands are the ports of Priolo and Milazzo.

Regarding the outlets abroad we operate with Greece in contractual system to Aspropyrgos and irregularly to Alexandroupolis, in the north of the country, but we also have deliveries to Bulgaria, Turkey and Egypt.
