The ports of Szczecin-Świnoujście and Venice will cooperate for the development of intermodal transport
The Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority has signed a letter of intent with the Port of Venice on taking steps to launch intermodal rail connections between the Baltic and the Adriatic. The agreement is the result of talks between the Polish delegation and Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Grzegorz Witkowski in Italy in April.
On the 10th International Maritime Congress in Szczecin the accompanying events were the signing of two letters of intent. The first concerns the cooperation between Orlen and the Maritime School Complex in Świnoujście in the context of the development of education in the field of logistics and marine energy.
In turn, the second letter was signed by representatives of the Italian port of Venice – Secretary General of the North Adriatic Sea Port Authority Antonella Scardino and the Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority – President of the Management Board Krzysztof Urbas, in order to undertake joint efforts to activate railway, intermodal connections for transporting cargo from common facilities, as well as to handle the stream of cargo between the Mediterranean basin and Scandinavia, using the ports of Szczecin and Świnoujście. The declared cooperation, in addition to joint initiatives supporting and promoting the development of railway connections, is also the exchange of experience, practices, operational “know-how” and cooperation in obtaining the necessary funds.
Prospects for the development of logistics services and intermodal transport in the region of Western Pomerania will be the topic of the INTERMODAL IN POLAND NORTH-SOUTH conference, which will be held on September 6-8 in Szczecin and Świnoujście.
