Abstract

Italian Port Authorities have to carry on some promotion activities ac- cording to art. 6 of Law 84/1994. In conducting these activities, the Port Authority need a lot of information on the passengers and goods flows, which could be not easily available if the management of the port infrastructures is assigned to a con- cessionary company. The aim of the paper is to verify the information systems implemented by a sample of Italian Port Authorities to collect information on the traffic flows necessary to support the decisions concerning the promotion activity from the concessionary companies. The results show that the Port Authorities ana- lyzed do not implement some integrated information systems.
