Port Authority of Civitavecchia
In 2003, Civitavecchia joined the ports of Fiumicino and Gaeta to form what's known today as the Port of Rome, serving not only Italy's three mln consumer capital, but also the regions of Campania, Umbria, Toscany and Marche.
Although Civitavecchia, Fiumicino and Gaeta function as a single port under one authority, each of them has own specialization. The 16 m deep Civitavecchia port - offering 23 pax berths for 40-100 m long yachts, 26 freight wharfs and an area of 2 mln m2 - is Rome's pax traffic hotspot, but handling also liquids, coal, metals, cement, minerals, fertilized and chemicals as well as a substantial volumes of container and ro-ro cargo. Port of Fiumicino specializes solely in liquids (chiefly petroleum products), while the 12 m deep Gaeta offers transhipment of similar goods to those of Civitavecchia, however, excluding boxes and ro-ro.
Currently, the port authority is focused on finishing the 2013-2015 development plan, due to which the Civitavecchia's 25th wharf will be turned into a container terminal (700,000 TEU annually in the future), a passenger terminal will be built in Fiumicino, not to mention the overall improvements of ports' and city's transport infrastructure.
