Italiana Coke, Terminal Alti Fondali Savona and Funivie make up the group responsible for managing the entire bulk cargo supply chain in the port of Savona – from unloading, to transport and storage – and one of Italy’s main coke production sites.

About usServing industry since 1897

Our history dates back to the very roots of Italian industry. For over 100 years, we have been working alongside numerous companies in various industrial sectors as  suppliers of coke, reaching international markets by means of an integrated logistics system

 

Coke logistics

The coke produced is delivered by road, rail or sea. Containers are shipped from the ports of Genoa and Savona/Vado Ligure. Bulk cargo ships are loaded at the Alti Fondali Savona terminal. Thanks to a stable partnership with European logistics companies, we are able to deliver to all European countries and reach all overseas destinations (Mediterranean, Far East and America).

Company mission

Since taking over Eni’s coke production and bulk logistics operations in 1994, Italiana Coke has always focused on the growth and continuous improvement of its operational activities and customer satisfaction. The continuous technological advancements at the plants have given Italiana Coke the opportunity to team up with a number of major companies around the world.
