Development of North Adriatic ports multimodal connections and their efficient integration into the Core Network.

The Action aims at supporting the preparation of mature Motorways of the Sea future projects of the NAPA Ports (Venice, Trieste, Koper and Rijeka) and intends to contribute to the development of these ports as points of interconnection between the sea transport and other modes of transport through the creation or improvement of hinterland access linking the ports via rail and inland waterways connections to the TEN-T Network. In addition to that, also ICT pilot actions are foreseen to improve the interoperability of different transport modes (sea and rail) in the logistic chain and the electronic exchange of information among the relevant stakeholders so the maritime links may properly serve the hinterland areas of North Adriatic Ports.
