The DPSS is a new generation tool for long-term strategic port planning. The focus of the document is the relationship between two souls of the territory often told in opposition: port and city. With the launch of the DPSS of the Port of Taranto, the aim is on the one hand to present the analysis work carried out in the previous months, and on the other hand to share the process of identifying the actions that will affect the port cluster of Taranto in the coming years. The topics dealt with in the document cover all areas of port activities, with an emphasis on two aspects: operability and sustainability, which can no longer be considered separately in the context of port development.

The strategies will concern both the vast area, such as the infrastructural connections between the port and the territory, the SEZ (Special Economic Zone) areas and the development of the entrepreneurial fabric, but above all the areas of city-port interaction, such as the waterfront, the Ex Torpediniere dock and the realisation of the Eco Industrial Park. Special attention is paid to the diversification of traffic and cruises, an expanding sector in the port of Taranto.

Participatory planning meetings have already begun with the stakeholders of the port of Taranto, in order to immediately include the fundamental contribution of those who live and cross the port.

The outputs of the pathway for the creation of the strategic document will be present on a dedicated platform on the institutional website of the Port Network Authority of the Ionian Sea, which is continuously updated, at the link: https://port.taranto.it/index.php/it/documento-di-programmazione-strategica-di-sistema.
