Agri-food, Project Cargo, Steel, Chemical and Fishing: thanks to its strategic geographical location, the Veneto Port System is the best place for the transit of different types of goods, both import and export.
Leading port for bulk agri-food traffic
Thanks to significant demand located in the port and the hinterland, rail and river intermodality, good nautical accessibility, and unified control procedures, the Port of Venice is a leading port for bulk agri-food traffic.
Additionally, it hosts two types of industries: milling (mills for human food production) and feed milling for livestock use (poultry, cattle, and swine farming). This also includes the oilseed pressing industry for the production of oils and flours.
Exceptional cargo is not an exception
For the ports of Venice and Chioggia, “exceptional cargo is not an exception” but a daily challenge. Every year, Venice handles thousands of project cargo destined for more than 50 countries worldwide.
Some of the world’s largest industrial components have passed through Venice to reach distant destinations such as the Middle East, Russia, and the Americas.
The perfect hub for steel products
Its location, infrastructure, and services make it the perfect hub for steel products to and from the manufacturing centers in Northern Italy.
Venice is one of the main ports for the iron traffic flow.
A recognized European excellence in the fishing industry
Chioggia has always been one of the Italian capitals of fishing and is a European excellence in terms of the fishing industry. At the national level, its fleet has the largest tonnage and total engine power, ensuring excellent performance in deep-sea fishing.
Additionally, Chioggia’s production includes breeding in the valleys and shellfish farming. It is also home to the largest fish market in the Adriatic.
