The Port of Taranto is located in the deep south of Italy, along the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Corridor of the EU Trans-European Transport Network. It is very close to the main traffics coming from the doubled Suez Canal, thus boasting a very special position between the Far East and the US connections and logistics activities.
The Ionian Special Economic Zone (SEZ) located in the port domain represents a unique investment opportunity in the heart of the Med Area and is a «constellation of logistic areas» within and around the Port of Taranto. Since February 2021, the Regulations for the functioning of the Customs Free Zone of the Port of Taranto (CFZ) has been activated.
The CFZ of the port of Taranto represents a further attraction for the port and the back-port domain and will contribute to the growth of both the new container terminal and other port companies. The Port boasts full intermodality and interoperability, being directly connected with the road and railway national networks and with the Grottaglie cargo airport (20 km)
