Study for the creation of the integrated intermodal logistic system in Port of Taranto back area


The project aims to re-design the Ferrandina logistic terminal in the province of Matera to increase its capacity. It is part of a larger regional development project aiming to establish a network of logistic hubs in the back area of the Port of Taranto.

The project will complete a study on enhancing the Ferrandina logistic terminal as a pilot for further development of Taranto's back-port infrastructure. It

includes all the necessary steps from the market feasibility studies to the final planning and the attainment of building authorisations and publication of call for tenders to build the infrastructure. The study will also assess the feasibility of financing such works through the establishment of a PPP scheme.

The final objective is to transform the current terminal into a key logistic hub specialised in the transfer of fresh produce. Some 7.5 million tonnes of fruit and vegetables are expected to pass through the new terminal yearly.

The action is closed.


EU contribution: €871,392
