Development

The port of Venice is increasing its capacity in all sectors.

Port of Venice

  • A new Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax Terminal with a logistics platform linked to the railroad, able to handle 1,000 ferries/year, will be operational by 2012.
  • An offshore terminal is being planned to receive oil, bulk and container traffic. Cargo will be transferred to a “mobile yard” made up of a fleet of barges sailing to either maritime and inland destinations.
  • This will produce a deep reorganization of both Venice and the North Adriatic port systems, upgrading Venice’s capacity to 3 million TEUs alone. The offshore terminal will operate together with a new container terminal in Marghera connected to the railroad network.
