Consorzio ZAI

Since its establishment in 1948, Consorzio ZAI has made a significant contribution to the development of the economy in Verona: as a territorial-based institutional body, it is responsible for urban planning and promoting the overall development of the territory and its economy.

Consorzio ZAI manages four areas: the industrial zone known as the Historical ZAI, the Two-Bassona industrial zone, the Marangona area, and the Europa Quadrant, Italy's first interport for combined goods traffic volumes. Altogether, this is a 10 million square meter infrastructure system, within which the Europa Quadrant is a true "city of goods," highly specialized and regulated by high-level integrated logistics systems.


Quadrante Europa

Located at the intersection of the Brenner (north-south) and Serenissima (west-east) motorways, as well as at the intersection of the corresponding railway lines, the Interporto Quadrante Europa covers an area of ​​2.5 million m2, with an expected expansion of up to 4.2 million m2.

This infrastructural system, designed and managed by the ZAI Consortium with a detailed plan approved by the Veneto Region, is directly connected to the Brenner axis and the future Base Tunnel. It represents an ideal meeting point for national and international road and rail freight transport; in particular, international freight traffic coming or going to central-northern Europe through the Brenner converge here.
