Il Park 5 disponibile per i pendolari a tariffa agevolata di 4 Euro


IL PARK5 DISPONIBILE PER I PENDOLARI A TARIFFA AGEVOLATA DI 4 EURO

Estesa l’apertura del park 5 grazie a l’accordo con Adsp per agevolare gli spostamenti dei pendolari da e per il centro storico con mezzi propri.

 

Venezia 19 maggio 2020 – Venezia Terminal Passeggeri ha esteso l’accordo con Autorità di Sistema Portuale per l’utilizzo del Parcheggio 5 in Marittima. I pendolari avranno a disposizione 200 posti per poter raggiungere Venezia con il proprio mezzo ad una tariffa super agevolata

 

Considerata l’eccezionalità della situazione e l’assoluta necessità di fare quanto possibile per semplificare la vita a tutti coloro i quali devono recarsi al lavoro in centro storico, è stato esteso l’accordo, inizialmente siglato a marzo e prorogato ad aprile, tra Autorità di Sistema Portuale, Comune di Venezia e VTP per l’utilizzo del Park 5 ubicato al di fuori dei varchi di sicurezza del Porto Crociere di Marittima con accesso dalla viabilità ordinaria.

 

Fino al 31 maggio il Park 5, i cui posti disponibili per i pendolari sono 200, resterà gratuito, a partire dal 1 giugno verrà applicata una tariffa super agevolata di 4 € a recupero dei costi vivi sostenuti da VTP. La gratuità applicata finora era stata voluta dalla società tramite accordo con l’ente concedente Autorità di Sistema Portuale e con il Comune di Venezia nel periodo di lockdown. VTP, il cui personale è ancora tutto in cassa integrazione a zero ore, aveva supportato i costi mensili di gestione ridotti al minimo poiché l’ingresso avveniva senza barriere e secondo la formula del “first come first serve”. Con l’avvio della “Fase 2” e della auspicata ripresa, VTP ha proposto all’Autorità di Sistema Portuale di proseguire con la disponibilità del Park 5 ad una tariffa super agevolata che possa coprire i costi vivi di ripristino dell’ingresso con sbarra per evitare abusi.

 

Per pendolari verrà realizzata un’apposita pagina raggiungibile dal sito VTP dedicata al park 5, attiva a partire dal 25 maggio. Da questa pagina attraverso pochi semplici passaggi sarà possibile acquistare delle giornate di accesso al parcheggio, anche non continuative, con applicazione di apposita tariffa di 4 € al giorno. Tutti i pagamenti avverranno esclusivamente tramite carta di credito/debito direttamente dal sito e l’accesso al parcheggio avverrà tramite il QR code generato all’atto dell’acquisto.

 

L’accordo avrà durata fino al 30 giugno e potrà essere rinnovato laddove permanesse l’assenza di traffico crocieristico. Il Park 5 è infatti un’area in concessione demaniale da parte dell’Autorità di Sistema Portuale necessaria per ospitare gli operatori portuali in servizio alla Marittima.

 

Ringraziamo l’Autorità di Sistema Portuale per aver concesso un utilizzo diverso da quello strettamente connesso alle attività portuali e siamo lieti poter supportare il Comune di Venezia per semplificare, per quanto possibile, il raggiungimento del posto di lavoro ai pendolari che si recano in centro storico” ha dichiarato Galliano Di Marco, Direttore Generale di Venezia Terminal Passeggeri S.p.A. “In questo periodo di emergenza nazionale riteniamo doveroso collaborare per quanto possibile per far ripartire il lavoro e l’economia del nostro territorio, auspicando che anche il nostro settore possa presto mettere fine alla crisi innescata dal Covid-19” conclude Di Marco.

Venezia Terminal Passeggeri vara un piano straordinario a tutela dei dipendenti


VENEZIA TERMINAL PASSEGGERI VARA UN PIANO STRAORDINARIO A TUTELA DEI DIPENDENTI

Zero licenziamenti e richiesta di cassintegrazione fino a fine anno, la società si impegna ad integrare lo stipendio fino all’80%

 

Venezia 30 marzo 2020 – Il Consiglio di Amministrazione di Venezia Terminal Passeggeri ha varato un piano straordinario per la società che possa far fronte all’attuale congiuntura fortemente influenzata dalla pandemia COVID-19 in corso e alle ricadute economiche e sociali che pesano sull’intero settore del turismo e sul territorio.

Un piano straordinario che si basa su una stima di ricavi che a fine anno saranno prossimi allo zero e che conseguentemente prevede una forte riduzione dei costi ma mira alla massima tutela per i dipendenti della società per i quali non è previsto alcun licenziamento.

Il Consilio di Amministrazione ha infatti deciso di attivare la cassa integrazione straordinaria per 9 settimane, come previsto dal DCPM “Cura Italia” e a seguire, sarà presentata richiesta di cassa integrazione ordinaria fino alla fine del 2020 e per un massimo di 12 mesi, con possibilità di rientro anticipato in un quadro quanto mai auspicabile di veloce ripresa dell’operatività.

Il Cda ha inoltre disposto che la mensilità di marzo venga pagata integralmente (indipendentemente dalla data di avvio della cassintegrazione) e che, per il periodo coperto dalla cassa integrazione, la società integri lo stipendio di ciascun dipendente fino all’80% del valore lordo visto che i massimali previsti avrebbero comportato una decurtazione significativa degli stipendi, che in molti casi sarebbero stati ben al di sotto del 50% del valore lordo.

Infine, VTP sta valutando di anticipare i pagamenti degli stipendi ad inizio di ciascun mese per sopperire ai tempi di pagamento più lunghi attualmente previsti dall’INPS.

Il terminal passeggeri di Venezia dovrà resterà aperto garantendo solo un servizio minimo per poter operare nel caso in cui una nave abbia necessità di ormeggiare in accordo con le Autorità nazionali e locali.

Abbiamo deciso di varare un piano straordinario e senza precedenti per la nostra società. Un piano che ha trovato pieno appoggio dei soci, dei dipendenti e dei loro rappresentanti sindacali che ringraziamo tutti per la disponibilità al dialogo e per la dimostrazione di stima e attaccamento ai valori della nostra squadra. Il contesto in cui ci muoviamo è particolarmente difficile, il settore del turismo è forse il più colpito da questa pandemia e – certamente – quello che ne pagherà le conseguenze per il tempo più lungo. La crocieristica, in particolare, è stata una delle prime attività a fermarsi e le previsioni ci dicono che sarà uno degli ultimi settori a ripartire. VTP oggi registra cancellazioni delle prenotazioni di ormeggio del 100% fino a fine giugno ma riteniamo sia doveroso ipotizzare un prolungamento di questa situazione con un orizzonte temporale che abbraccia tutta la stagione 2020. Ovviamente si tratta di ipotesi che il consiglio di amministrazione è pronto a rivedere qualora si possano intravvedere segnali di ripresa anticipata. Sentiamo forte la responsabilità di tutte le oltre 4000 maestranze del nostro territorio che ruotano attorno al mondo della crocieristica veneziana, degli oltre 70 fornitori diretti di VTP e di tutti coloro che con noi da sempre si impegnano per mantenere e far crescere un importante attore dell’economia e dell’occupazione del nostro territorio. A tutti i dipendenti di VTP, agli amici e partner della società vogliamo testimoniare il nostro impegno nel portare avanti ogni iniziativa che tuteli l’occupazione e salvaguardi l’eccellenza del nostro terminal, ma anche la nostra determinazione nel cogliere ogni minimo segnale di ripresa”, hanno dichiarato il Presidente di VTP Fabrizio Spagna e il Direttore Generale Galliano Di Marco.

“Venice in their heart” venezia terminal passeggeri and cruise lines donate more than 1 million euros to the City to support restoration efforts


The cruise industry will donate to the Major of Venice Mr. Luigi Brugnaro a contribution of more than 1 Million Euros to go towards the restoration effort following the unprecedented flooding in November. The donation is the result of the cruise industry’s commitment to being a partner to the ports and destinations on which they call—in good times and in difficult times.

Donations were made by the leading cruise lines that call in Venice, including Royal Caribbean, MSC Cruises, Costa Cruises, and Norwegian Cruise Lines, in addition to Global Ports Holding, Venezia Terminal Passeggeri (VTP), and other cruise lines, including Sea Cloud Cruises, all of whom immediately responded to VTP’s call for donations and committed to support the rebirth of the city.

We followed the events of 12 November with a great amount of concern; it became immediately clear that the situation was very complex and it would take months to calculate the full extent of the damage. We and our cruise line members were struck by the “Venezia nel cuore” (“Venice in your heart”) fundraising initiative and therefore made the decision to provide a concrete contribution to this city that is in the hearts of all of us, our employees, crew, and our passengers. With this spirit and with utmost respect for the city and its inhabitants, we decided not to adopt a specific project, but to entrust to the city’s Mayor a sum that will enable the Municipality to concretely face the immediate and urgent needs of the city and its citizens. Our contribution provides a way for us to sponsor one of the most beautiful cities in the world, as well as demonstrate our deep respect for the city,” said Kelly Craighead, president & CEO of CLIA on behalf of all CLIA Cruise Line members.

The Mayor Luigi Brugnaro and the President of the Region Luca Zaia have been active, from the very beginning, to secure funds from the Government and to ensure the declaration of a state of emergency, which they achieved in just a few days. However, we were aware that this was not going to be enough: the uniqueness of Venice and the delicate nature of its lagoon environment demand the allocation of major funds and, perhaps, more attention and dedication. From day one, VTP strove to echo the most immediate needs of Venice and found that the operation and the entire segment were indeed ready to provide all the collaboration needed. Although we were aware of the major repercussions, it would have on our business, we promptly arranged for the ships to be deployed elsewhere, over the weekend following the event, to show our respect for the city. Today, we have concrete assistance provided by the cruise industry, which has never failed to support communities that have had to react to environmental and international crises, by providing available resources and skills to overcome times of difficulty. I must in particular thank all the employees of Venezia Terminal Passeggeri, who despite the damage they themselves suffered, were keen to use their energies to ensure that the terminal was operational as soon as possible and to provide their contribution to the city in the hardest days of the flooding,” said Fabrizio Spagna, Chairman of VTP.

The cruise industry’s support for Venice will not wane, nor will Venice’s importance for all the ports of call and the cities in the Adriatic and Eastern Mediterranean itineraries. We are providing tangible assistance to the Government and local bodies of the Veneto region by supplying technical information, studies, assessments and simulations, in order to ensure that decisions about the future of cruising in Venice are informed, sustainable, and forward-looking. We are equally committed to investing in advanced technology, design, and ‘zero-impact’ solutions to minimize our footprint on the cities and ports that host us. We are aware there is still a lot to do, but our industry has been able to leverage innovation as a major means for growth: we are convinced that the Blue Economy is a major asset for local territories and by joining forces with other stakeholders, we can really make a difference,” declared Adam Goldstein, CLIA Global Chair.

Contributions to date to “Venezia nel cuore” have been received from:

  • Costa Cruises
  • Global Ports Holding
  • MSC Cruises
  • Norwegian Cruise Lines
  • Royal Caribbean
  • Sea Cloud Cruises
  • Venezia Terminal Passeggeri

Galliano Di Marco, Venezia Terminal Passeggeri Managing Director, unanimously appointed President of Assiterminal Passengers Commission


Assiterminal, associating all the port operators in Italy, has renewed the charges of its technical commissions and working groups.

For the Passengers Commission, which has the purpose of studying and deepening all the issues related to the management of the passenger terminals in addition to the services and the technologies related to the travelers handling, the Chairman Luca Becce has proposed the nomination of Ing. Galliano Di Marco, Managing Director of Venezia Terminal Passeggeri (VTP), who has been unanimously appointed by the management.

I am grateful to the Chairman and to all the management for this challenging assignment. It is my privilege and I am sure that with the colleagues we will make a real contribution to the sustainable growth of this sector. The experience of Venice, with all its complexity, but also the on-going initiatives in others Italian ports can really be the best practices that Italy can – and must export throughout the World”, said Galliano Di Marco.

Venezia Terminal Passeggeri is the recipient of “Premio Innovazione SMAU”, thanks to its Multipurpose Boarding Tower


Venezia Terminal Passeggeri (VTP) – the company that manages the terminals for cruise ships across the areas of Marittima, St. Basilio and Riva dei Sette Martiri in Venice- announces to be the recipient of Premio Innovazione SMAU, thanks to its Multipurpose Boarding Tower (MBT) project, active since 2011.

Premio Innovazione SMAU is a significant recognition in the IT sector, conferred by SMAU to those companies whose outstanding innovation and technology skills accelerate the growth and the competitiveness of the solutions across local and international markets.

The Multipurpose Boarding Tower (MBT) is a solution developed by VTP Engineering, a subsidiary company of VTP S.p.A, which facilitates the boarding and the disembarkment of passengers – even more than 2000 per hour- from cruise ships. MBT is a multifunctional mobile tower able to automatically adjust itself to the level of the tide, with an integrated security system to access the dock.

It is also equipped with elevators to link the dock, terminal and vessel, regardless of the height of the boarding ramp, and provides passengers (especially those with reduced mobility), dock operators and crew with several alternative routes. One of most innovative features of the MBT is how the gangway is anchored to the ship, to guarantee the maximum level of security, also in adverse weather conditions.

Galliano Di Marco, Managing Director of VTP commented: “We are very satisfied and proud to receive this award. Projects ideated by VTP Engineering, such as the MBT, position VTP very distinctively as a company able to develop innovative products to better manage passengers’ flow, to decrease the amount of time spent by ships in ports and to reduce the energetic consumptions connected to the port activities. In addition, thanks to the 70 million of euros investments put in place from 1997 to 2017, we boosted the efficiency of the infrastructures, reducing the impact on the environment and increasing the comfort and security of passengers”.

Shareholders’ Meeting approves the financial statements at 31 May 2017 – Gianni Mion appointed Chairman of VTP


The Shareholders’ Meeting of Venezia Terminal Passeggeri – gathered today under the chairmanship of Sandro Trevisanato – approved the financial statements at 31 May 2017, confirming a turnover of EUR 33.66 million, substantially in line with the EUR 33.73 million of the previous year.

EBITDA rose by 6.46% to EUR 10.19 million against EUR 9.70 million in the previous year. Operating income at 31 May 2017 stood at EUR 5.61 million, up by 14.4% from EUR 4.90 million at 31 May 2016. The pre-tax result was EUR 5.49 million, an increase of 18% from the EUR 4.66 million for the period 2015-16.

Finally, VTP’s net profit stood at EUR 3.86 million, up 22% on the previous year (EUR 3.166 million).

These results were achieved without any adjustment to tariffs, but solely through improved efficiency in various sectors and cost containment, despite the loss of more than 63,000 cruise passengers compared to the previous year, rising to over 220,000 cruise passengers lost from the year ending 31/05/2013, after the introduction of the navigation limits and the voluntary limitation of tonnage to 96,000 tonnes practised by the companies.

At the same time, the Shareholders’ Meeting appointed Gianni Mion as the new Chairman of Venice Terminal Passeggeri, whose task will be to continue – in synergy with CEO Galliano Di Marco – the work performed by Trevisanato, in office since 2002.

In addition, the Shareholders’ Meeting appointed the new Board of Directors, now composed of Gianni Mion, Chiara Cacciavillani, representing Veneto Sviluppo, Howard Frank and Pierfrancesco Vago, representing the cruise companies, and Monica Scarpa representing Save.

Under the leadership of Trevisanato, in twelve years passenger numbers at the Terminal grew from 500,000 to nearly 2 million and the turnover grew from 6 to 35 million of euros in 2013, making it the largest Home Port in the Mediterranean.

“For me it has been 15 years of great satisfaction and important results, in which we have never stopped focussing on the excellence of the service, technological innovation and the environmental sustainability of our activities,” commented Sandro Trevisanato. “We have initiated several projects, investing huge resources to ensure a future in this nerve centre of the Laguna, transforming Marittima from a neglected commercial port into a modern Cruise Terminal, equipped with 10 Terminals for 10 vessels. In this context, I would like to thank VTP’s executives, employees and independent contractors, Directors and Statutory Auditors who have followed each other in nine Boards over the past 15 years, the companies, the authorities and all the operators involved in cruise operations in Venice, without which the Passenger Port would not have achieved these results. Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to wish the new Chairman Gianni Mion good luck and every success in this new challenge to overcome the uncertainty that over a five year period has weighed on the Venetian cruise sector, certain that his professionalism and experience will make a significant contribution to a complex situation.”

VTP ACHIEVES THE “ENERGY CERTIFICATES”, THANKS TO ITS EFFICIENT CONSUMPTION OF ENERGY


After a long evaluation process, GSE (Gestore Servizi Energetici) has conferred on Venezia Terminal Passeggeri (VTP) with the ‘Energy efficiency certificates”.

The important recognition certificates the considerable quantity of energy savings achieved by VTP thanks to the sophisticated technologies and optimizing systems implemented by its subsidiary VTP Engineering.

The certification comes as a result of the completion of a massive internal lighting system project, which aims at minimizing the energy consumption and reducing any possible loss.

“We are particularly honored for this important recognition, as it underlines VTP’s efforts to protect the environment”, stated Sandro Trevisanato, President of VTP. “This is also an excellent result for Venice’s sustainability, and it has been achieved thanks to the joined efforts between VTP and our subsidiary VTP Engineering, whose expertise in developing and implementing technology solutions for ports is renowned”.

VENEZIA TERMINAL PASSEGGERI ACQUITTED IN SBB PASSENGER BRIDGE DESIGN PLAGIARISM LAWSUIT. VTP WINS THE APPEAL FROM ADELTE (formerly known as TEAM)


The Court of Appeal in Barcelona entirely rejected the appeal initiated by Adelte (formerly known as TEAM), a Barcelona-based company specialised in the design of passenger gangways, against the first instance sentence by the Tribunal in Barcelona , regarding an alleged plagiarism committed by VTP in the design of  its SBB passenger gangway.

During both instances of the trial, Adelte’s allegations were judged baseless, thus clearing the authenticity of the design of the passenger bridge and VTP’s intellectual property.

Many of VTP Engineering’s projects and equipments are a result of the twenty-year experience in managing such a complex port, as the one in Venice, and are being implemented successfully. For instance, the Multipurpose Boarding Tower (MBT), a revolutionary solution that facilitates the boarding and disembarkment of passengers from cruise ships, is a unique case in the world, like the Ship Boarding Bridge (SBB), an innovative gangway which responds to the current needs of today’s cruise ships.

“This sentence confirms the authenticity and the innovation behind VTP Engineering’s solutions, a subsidiary of Venezia Terminal Passeggeri S.p.A, and opens new commercial perspectives” stated Galliano Di Marco, Managing Director of Venezia Terminal Passeggeri and Chairman & CEO of VTP Engineering.

VENEZIA TERMINAL PASSEGGERI (VTP): VENICE CRUISE PORT AWARDED AS “2016 BEST TURNAROUND DESTINATION” FOR ITS OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE BY CRUISE INSIGHTS


Venezia Terminal Passeggeri announces that Cruise Insights, one of the leading publications in the cruise sector, has named the cruise port of Venice as the “Best Turnaround Destination” of 2016.

This is an international recognition, which is usually conferred to those destinations offering a superior service to passengers.

This is the fourth time that the Port of Venice receives this accolade in this specific category (previous awards in 2012, 2013 and 2014), thus confirming the attractiveness of Venice combined with VTP’s management of the port and the high level technological solutions implemented during the years.

In the past, the cruise port of Venice received the following awards: “Best Destination Experience – Independent Sightseeing 2011”; “Best Turnaround Port of the Mediterranean 2015”.

Sandro Trevisanato, VTP President, commented “We are particularly proud of this prestigious recognition. Thanks to the almost 70 million Euros investments put in place from 1997 to 2016, we have improved the efficiency of the facilities, thus reducing the environmental impact of the port operations and, at the same time, enhancing both the comfort and the safety of the passengers.  I would like to thank the Port Authority, the cruise lines, our staff and everybody working in the Venetian cruise industry: without them the Port would not have achieved these excellent results”.
