About Trieste terminal

The Free Port zone in Trieste means that goods arriving from abroad by sea may transit freely and be sent to their foreign destinations. The port's special extra-customs status makes it the ideal port for Europe-bound cargo traffic from the Eastern Mediterranean, offering a significant advantage to U.N. Ro-Ro customers, as it’s not available at any other port in the Mediterranean.

Once extra EU goods are imported, they may benefit from a 180 day delay in the payment of customs duties, VAT and excise duties; no limit of time on the storage of goods, no bank guarantee is due as long as the goods are in the Free Port. The harbor duties are lower than in the other Italian ports, transit for commercial vehicles directed abroad are simplified.
