On 22th June 2018 took place the Conference «ADRIETA Multimodal Transport Corridor: the Sea of synergies, the land of multimodality», organized by the Port Authority of Igoumenitsa. The event was successfully completed, under the auspices of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Insular Policy and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport and in that context RAM has presented the ADRI-UP project and its main objectives to the audience attending the event. In particular, from the presentation, it has showed that the Adriatic-Ionian Cluster is amongst the one who grows faster in the 2017-2014 time frame: especially in terms of RoRo services offer, the Adriatic-Ionian port cluster is the most interested by international RoRo services, especially on the Italy-Greece route.
The aim of the Conference was to exchange views and practices from both the Port and Maritime community, Adriatic - Ionian - Egnatia, and all the parties involved in the supply chain, focusing on issues related to offering common effective and competitive services and to shared infrastructural strategies and investments. Important issues and viewpoints set out during the interventions of which showed that the development of the ADRIETA Multimodal Transport Corridor will contribute to the modernization of the transport system in the region as well as to the overall development of the international, national and regional economy of the Adriatic-Ionian region, in compliance also to the Action Plan settled in the EUSAIR EU Macro Regional Strategy.
In this framework, Adri-up has been considered an important example and best practice of cooperative and selective investments to increase existing freight flows and intercept new traffics for the development of the area.
The project co-financed by the CEF programme, through the planned infrastructure upgrading in the Ports of Ancona, Trieste, Igoumenitsa and their respective inland terminals, aims at increasing port capacity and improving the connectivity between the main Adriatic-Ionian logistics hubs linking four out of the nine core corridors of the TEN-T network: Scan-Med, Bac, Med and Orient-East Med.
To this regard, the activities of the project carry on: the Adri-up Steering Committee was held in Sivota the 21th of June. The partners were reunited and they discussed, among others, about the administrative requirements of the project, the progress of the activities as well as the next promotional events where Adri-up will be presented.
