Brindisi Port Finalises Location For Customs Free Zone

Brindisi port finalises location for customs free zone

Brindisi, Italy (PortSEurope) March 2, 2021 – The director general of the Customs and Monopolies Agency (ADM – Agenzia delle dogane e dei monopoli), Marcello Minenna, has approved the perimeter of the Free Interclusion Customs Zone (ZFD – Zona Franca Doganale Interclusa) of Brindisi, located in the industrial area behind the port, in some areas of Brindisi Nord behind the Costa Morena quay. Large strategic
spaces have been identified that are no longer useful for current energy industry use, but can be used for functional storage and logistics activities within the ZFD. The new facilities will not have any environmental impact and will adopt the key principles of the circular economy. “Having a free zone in the port area is a fundamental opportunity for economic operators”, said president of Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mare Adriatico Meridionale (AdSP – Southern Adriatic Sea Port Authority) Ugo Patroni Griff, “it is not only possible to defer the customs tax period, but also to manage the logistics chain in suspension of taxes. We have managed to include extensive and unused areas such as Capobianco and Costa Morena in the Customs Free Zone, significantly increasing the attractiveness of the Brindisi port by tenfold. By replacing industry with industry, we are able to strongly support employment, avoiding the loss of resources, and to relaunch the economy of the port of Brindisi, taking full advantage of the opportunities offered by the energy transition”. “State administrations must create a system to make the most of the national port system, putting it in connection with the rail transport network and the European and trans-European intermodal logistic axes”, commented Director General ADM, Marcello Minenna, “this also means making our infrastructures attractive for new productive investments, selected by the market also for their energy and environmental sustainability”.
