Yilport moves for Taranto concession

Yilport is considering acquiring the concession to operate the container terminal at the port of Taranto, Italy. 

Port Network Authority of the Ionian Sea (PNAIS), the managing institution of the port of Taranto, has accepted Yilport’s proposal and plans to open discussions with the Turkish terminal operator.

Yilport said that it would improve Taranto Container Terminal as both a gateway terminal and also a transhipment hub. “Yilport also intends to collaborate with local operators to develop breakbulk, project cargo and ro-ro traffic,” said Robert Yuksel Yildirim, chairman of Yilport Holding.
