The origins

Mac Port was created in 1987 based on the vision of Giordano Bilotti who, working as an operator at Compagnia Portuale di Ravenna, had the intuition to establish a company specialised in the modern mechanisation of port areas. Giordano had the opportunity to gather first-hand experience in the ports of the south of Italy and he understood their potential. Thus, Mac Port took its first steps and has grown constantly over time, becoming renowned in the port industry at national level.

The company becomes more structured

The sons of Giordano Bilotti, first Matteo and then Fabio, started working at Mac Port, leading the company to become more structured and stand out in the industry’s business network. The company starts and implements numerous quality plans, investing in the training of highly specialised workers, with the technical competences and a unique know-how of the machines. Transparency in relationships, health and safety at work are the core values of Mac Port, with ongoing training and trust in relationships as its pillars.
