Analysis of docks’ capacity in concession to Arcelor Mittal Spa in the port of Taranto
TRT has been contracted to carry out an assessment of the actual capacity of the docks taking into account the current production level of the steel plant. The need for the analysis was expressed by the AdSP Management Committee in agreement with the local authorities.
Due to the significant reduction that affected the plant’s production capacity in recent years with the main consequence of the inevitable decline in port traffic, the analysis was conducted with the main objective of responding to the need for rationalization and efficiency of the logistics and port infrastructure organization.
During the study, statistical data and potential future scenarios for the relaunch of the plant were considered, highlighting the existing oversizing of the docks intended for raw materials and products handling, with respect to the actual operational needs.
At the end of the analysis, strategies to promote the efficient use of the docks and the functional and environmental progress of the freight handling have been included. The need for solutions with reduced environmental impact, in line with the requirements and expected performance, was also stressed.
