Venice, Italy (PortSEurope) October 17, 2017 – The 11th Baltic-Adriatic Corridor Coordination Forum takes place in Brussels on October 16. In this occasion, the Port of Venice is participating to the Round Table dedicated to ports. The goal is to focus on “last mile” and hinterland connections state of art, as well as on the Motorways of the Seas and intermodal projects development perspectives.
Intermodal connections are essential for a solid and concrete port systems development strategy. This is particularly true for the Port of Venice, which is worldwide recognized as an essential port of the Trans-European Transport Network that is crossed by two of the nine priority European corridors – the Baltic-Adriatic and the Mediterranean ones – and that, through Verona, is also connected to the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Corridor.
The Baltic-Adriatic corridor runs in the North-South direction on the European Continent, and constitutes a European axis backbone between the Baltic and the Adriatic seas, linking their relevant ports (Trieste, Venice, Ravenna, Koper, Gdansk/Gdynia), with primary hinterland cities (Vienna, Graz, Klagenfurt, Villach, Udine) between Poland and Italy.
The morning session ends with the conclusions of Kurt Bodewig, the European Coordinator of the Baltic-Adriatic Corridor, while in the afternoon the event will focus on the Corridor progress implementation reports.
