Adriatic Ports Receive Boost from EU

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

The Adriatic ports of Venice, Trieste, Ravenna, Ancona and Monfalcone in Italy and the port of Koper in Slovenia will collaborate in producing a study which will be co-financed by the EU with €1 million from the TEN-T Multi-Annual Call, to create an integrated multi-port gateway capable of improving cargo interoperability and fostering co-modality.

The study is focused on the development of a multimodal and multiport gateway, connecting the Adriatic ports to mainland logistic platforms in their respective countries, as well as supporting the development of strategic links by sea between the Mediterranean and Black Sea areas, based in particular on MoS corridors.
The vision for the new “Adriatic Gateway” is to ensure maximum competitiveness for the ports involved and to ensure that sea traffic flows in the region are integrated with the inland logistic infrastructure. This, in turn, will boost the attractiveness of sea shipping and increase the freight traffic flows for the participating ports.
The study is expected to be completed by the end of 2012.
