Sinalefi is a maritime agency founded in 2023 as a joint project between two Genoese holding companies, Finsea and IL Investimenti which deal with agency services and assistance in maritime works.

It was selected by the Fincantieri Infrastructure Opere Marittime and the PerGenova Breakwater Consortium, in September 2023, to assist all vessels headed for the Ligurian capital to unload stone material for the new offshore breakwater of Genoa. This specific project will also aid loading ports.

Sinalefi is the latest in a series of projects involving these two Genoese companies: the founding of Terminal Sech di Calata Sanità, the establishment of the Logtainer company, which is today the leading intermodal operator in the Northwest, to Derrick, (with four container depots between Genoa and Livorno) and also to BN di Navigazione, a shipping company in the passenger traffic sector. These joint ventures inspired the name of the company, being the anagram of the two holdings, recalling the term synalepha: from Greek, fusion together.
