THE NORTH ADRIATIC PORTS RELAUNCH TRILATERAL COOPERATION BETWEEN ITALY, CROATIA AND SLOVENIA
Venice, 3rd December 2021
In Venice, in the presence of the Italian, Croatian and Slovenian Ministers of Infrastructure and the European Commissioner for Transport, the Presidents of the 5 ports of NAPA (North Adriatic Ports Association) signed on 3rd December 2021 a Joint declaration on common policies and actions to promote environmental sustainability, digitalisation and connectivity for increasingly smart and green ports.
The objectives of the Joint declaration will be pursued through a permanent cross-border cooperation for the purpose of reducing the environmental impacts of port operations in the Northern Adriatic region.
NAPA ports have undertaken also to optimise and harmonise logistics and transport procedures on the sea and land through the use of digital technologies. The aim is to streamline last-mile port procedures while speeding up ship entry and exit procedures, and to apply integrated technological tools for providing information that can improve the safety of maritime transport operations.
In this framework COMODALCE was mentioned as a best practice in the field of digitalisation of freight transport, giving greater visibility and relevance to the project itself and its main results.
