On top of the financial performance analysis, the key pillars of the business strategy were also presented, with an emphasis on the long-term growth through upgrading of infrastructure, equipment and connectivity networks, under strict safety and security protocols, promoting modern sustainability practices.


It was highlighted that ThPA S.A. maintains a strong financial position and generates new positive cash flows, able to finance operating expenses (OpEx), distribution of satisfactory dividends and a significant part of the total investment needs (CapEx), combined with the future use of borrowing, when required. The Company remains Debt free.


Regarding the capital expenditures plan, ThPA S.A. has implemented significant investments over € 71 mil., from March 2018 until December 2023. Among those, two new state-of-the-art STS gantry cranes, a mobile harbor crane and numerous equipment were acquired, while it proceeded to upgrades of platforms, buildings and energy supply substations, complex projects which are expected to significantly improve functionality and servicing at the Terminal Stations. Within 2023, investments of € 9,2 mil. were executed, indicatively:


  • New Cruise Terminal “Alexander the Great”
  • Repair and upgrade of quay 10

The Management of ThPA S.A. is focused on a series of new implementations, in addition to the above, with emphasis on further strengthening the leading role of the Port of Thessaloniki as a primary infrastructure for conventional cargo handling in the Eastern Mediterranean, as well as on the expansion of the Free Zone. Further on, the development of the “beyond the Port activities” is promoted, aiming at the integration of the Port of Thessaloniki into the wider supply chain of the region, providing intermodal transport solutions to and from the main Balkan Countries. The direct rail connection between the Port of Thessaloniki and Skopje (N. Macedonia) has been added to the existing, while destinations are expected to be enriched in the future.


The Management of ThPA, despite the volatile international environment (crisis in the Red Sea, war in Ukraine, inflationary conditions on global markets) remains positive for cargo and passengers’ throughput and overall performance growth for 2024 as well, estimating all above parameters manageable, targeting to better utilization of the services provided, adjustments in pricing and the further development of the organization and operation of the Port. The highest container throughput recorded in the Port’s history (520.048 TEU), was in 2023.
