The Taranto Bulk Cargo Terminal Consortium and the Italcave Consortium have agreed to relocate their activities from an existing site on the Polisettoriale Quay to the Cement Pier, thereby freeing up land for use by Taranto Container Terminal. The port authority says this will provide widespread benefits for all concerned. Previously, Ilva Spa, Cementir Spa and the Municipality of Taranto, as well as the FILT CGIL, CISL and Fit Uiltrasporti trade unions, had all signed an agreement to allow this relocation to take place.
