:The North Adriatic Sea Port Authority is a public body in charge of planning, promoting and monitoring port operations, dredging and overseeing the supply of services of general interest, managing the State Maritime Property, including the Port of Venice (a European core port) and – in the near future – the Port of Chioggia (a European comprehensive port). Venice harbour counts on 3 specialized ports of call: a passenger port located at the junction between the historical centre and the mainland, a cargo port 2000 ha wide in Marghera, one of the largest port-industrial and logistics areas in Europe, and a fully intermodal ro-ro/ro-pax port in Fusina. The Port of Venice is the first Italian container Port in the Adriatic Sea, one of Europe’s major breakbulk ports and unsurpassed in project cargo handling. Venice counts on excellent road and rail connections and represents the only maritime-fluvial port in Italy. The Port Authority is also committed to set up a Green, Safe and Ethical Port, being its investments in infrastructures always in compliance with the principles of eco-friendliness and environmental protection.
