6 COMPANY STRUCTURE
7 INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR CRUISE PORTS Since its foundation, Venezia Terminal Passeggeri S.p.A. (VTP) has reached and continues to fully exceed the objectives for which it was created, handling an impressive 1,887,771 total passengers in 2009, which represents a % increase since The Company has also expanded its operations beyond the Venice area, now also operating the Ravenna Cruise Ship Terminal as technical partner. The complexity associated with the management of a Passenger Port with these numbers, in terms of ship traffic and passenger and operators handling, and with multiple operating sites has led the VTP to look into innovative solutions to improve how it manages passenger flows, to decrease the time ships must remain in the port, and to reduce energy consumption related to port operations. VTP Engineering was founded to meet this need and has developed into a division of VTP S.p.A., the result of a partnership with Abacoingegneria Treviso S.r.l., an engineering company highly respected in the area of industrial design, consulting for project management and technical engineering services. The objective of VTP Engineering is to design and implement innovative technological solutions and patents to apply to port-related areas.

11 The port of Venice: strategically located and linked All terminals are easily connected with the mainland. In fact the Venezia Terminal Passeggeri S.p.A is situated at the exit of the Ponte della Libertà (causeway connecting Venice to the mainland), allowing to reach the Passenger Port by car, taxi-cab, water taxi, public waterway or bus. In addition all terminals are only 3 minutes far from the historical city centre and St. Lucia Railway Station thanks to the People Mover, a land funicular connecting the Passenger Port to Piazzale Roma, the point in which land traffic enters the city. This monumental work that will completely change a side of the city and the town entrance, responding to local mobility and international visitor reception requirements, will be completed by the construction of a new multi-story car park along with shops and hotels located at the Marittima area. Furthermore, less than 13 kilometers from the Venezia Terminal Passeggeri, the Marco Polo Airport with its 200 daily flights completes the Port s claim to be one of the most easily accessible Cruise Terminals. Location of the passenger Terminals is strategic not only for the city, but as well for its easy access to all the attractions that surround Venice and the Veneto Region. Among the main cultural attractions within 60 miles from the Port of Venice, you will find Treviso, Padua, Verona and Garda Lake. The wineries of the Soave grape, the Euganean Hills, famous golf courses like the Asolo Golf Club or the Lido of Venice, the Dolomites and Cortina d Ampezzo are an hour and a half drive away. With over 100 specialized companies, including shipping agents, providing services for shipping lines and cruise companies that call in Venice you will find an agent that fits your needs.

30 crew services Seafarers are the hardworking men and women who work aboard cargo and cruise ships, playing a critical role in the growth of global commerce. 90% of global trade is transported by sea and seafarers are the human faces behind the food we eat, the oil we use in our cars and the cement in the sidewalks we tread. Seafarers work long hours, often under lonely, perilous conditions. Signing on for year-long contracts at sea in order to support loved ones at home, mariners must deal with isolation, stress, dangerous conditions and increasing incidents of piracy in certain parts of the world. We find most crew now come from countries where unemployment is very high and the jobs they find with cargo and cruise lines provide means to support their families and build futures for them. In addition to being so far from home, seafarers are nearly invisible to the societies they serve, for this reason Stella Maris Friends offers to them support at different levels. Stella Maris Friends Onlus takes care about seafarers in Venice port. SeafarerS welfare facilities Born in 2001 Stella Maris Friends Onlus provides help to seafarers inside Marittima Seamen s Club, also through a strong ship visiting activity in Marghera cargo port managed by the main branch in via Fratelli Bandiera 158/A (Marghera Venezia).
