Other holdings

The Consorzio holding in Interporto di Padova spa (Freight Village of Padua) and in Servizi Logistici srl (Logistic Services), has proved to be profitable both from an economic and a strategic point of view. Its success has also been confirmed by the fact that the running results of the above mentioned companies as well as the correlated value of their net assets are constantly positive.

In 2004 Consorzio Zip took stock in Interporto di Padova spa for a total of € 4,457,10 and, therefore, increased its holding up to 9,696% of the corporate capital. Similarly, Consorzio has consolidated its holding in Servizi Logistici srl by reaching a share equal to 4% of the corporate capital in order to ensure its participation in a sector extremely important to enterprises, which need the integration of logistics with production.

Since we believe that the Consorzio holding in bodies and companies operating in the Polesine territory is strategical, we recall that Zip has shares equal to 0,499%, for a total of € 35,327.00, of the company Interporto di Rovigo spa (Rovigo Freight Village).

Internationally, Consorzio has kept an holding, equal to 0,028% of the corporate capital, in Interporto Romania sa (Rumania Freight Village), a company that, after increasing its corporate capital up to € 7,008,552.00, has successfully begun to carry out its institutional tasks, such as the construction of an industrial estate and a freight village particularly important to the expansion of trade traffic, bringing profit to enterprises located in the Paduan industrial area.

The fiscal year 2003 was particularly positive – profits for a total of € 603,946 – for the company Infracom Italia spa, of which Consorzio is still a shareholder. In cooperation with Consorzio Zip, Infracom Italia spa fosters the development and management of complex projects based on new technologies, which can meet the needs of enterprises in the matter of telecommunications and mobility.

The municipality of Bovino (in the province of Foggia) and Consorzio Zip have stocks in the company Tecno Agenzia srl, whose corporate capital increased sharply from a total of € 16,500 to a total of € 38,200 in 2004.

  • Consorzio Zip, through its holdings in companies set up over the last years, like Eine, has maintained and increased its commitment to develop relations aimed at carrying out integrated and shared activities, within a system logic, with similar bodies operating in the north-east territory of Italy.
