The AdSP has specified that "the relative project to the Polisettoriale Pier of the port of Taranto previews an important strategic positioning of the terminal in the central Mediterranean with the gradual attainment of meaningful traffics".

The AdSP has evidenced also the good perspectives offered also from by now the next effective start of the Multi region Special Economic Zone, that it sees included also the Basilicata, that will be able to attract to new industrial and manifacturing activities that will have to make use of the port for own import-export and will give ulterior overhong to the activities of the ionic port of call.

"The port of Taranto - the president of the AdSP has commented, Sergio Prete - is gradually exceeding the deep crisis of the last years due to several factors, between which the problematic notes of the industrial section and the closing of the terminal containers. Already beginning from the end last year the first signs of resumption have been perceived. The concrete start of all the initiatives put in field and of the programmed activities will allow a gradual but important resumption that it will be able to lead the port of call to an exponential increase, is in terms of traffics and occupation but also of diversification, innovation and environmental sustainability. Yilport, ZES, Arcelor Mittal, the Innovation Hub, Logistic Platform, Falanto Service Port Center, are only some of the Pillars on which we are working in order to guarantee to Taranto the strategic positioning that it deserves in the Mediterranean".
