Founded in the 1950s by Salvatore Cafiero, Scafi – Società di navigazione S.p.A. is today a leading company in Italy’s shipping industry. Scafi played a major role in two of the greatest success stories in the history of Italian ports: the development of the Port of Gioia Tauro, now the largest transhipment hub in the Mediterranean, and the transformation of the Port of La Spezia from a regional to an international port. The group currently operates in Italy via its three subsidiaries, Rimorchiatori Riuniti Spezzini (La Spezia), Con.Tug (Gioia Tauro) and Carmelo Noli (Savona- Vado), with over 20 state-of-the-art tugboats.
