General cargo



Brindisi territory is rich in industry, trades and agriculture. The port’s role is multi-functional, capable of hosting traffic that criss-crosses the southeastern Mediteranean. Dry foodstuffs traffic, 300.000 tons a year, is made up mostly of grains, while bulk liquids consist mostly of vegetable oils. Brindisi is very close to Greece, Albania, Montenegro ports, but also to Turkey, Egypt and other countries of the southern Mediteranean.

Thanks to accords between Port Authority, foreign countries and passenger lines, numerous routes have been developed with the objective of shifting travel from the highways to the sea, in accordance with European Community goals to create a Motorway of the Sea. Heavy commercial vehicles number travelling by sea has continued to grow, so every year approximately make 100.000 trucks travel through Brindisi.
