Apulia Region plays a role in National and Regional Transportation Plans

National and Regional Transportation plans consider Apulia to be a strategically important Central Mediterranean location. This, combined with Apulia's flourishing economy, calls for a number of significant infrastructure developments in regional communications:

- Doubling rail tracks on the Taranto-Bari railways to enhance Taranto's connection with the "Adriatic corridor", linking North and South Europe
- electrification of Taranto-Brindisi railway lines to facilitate increased flow of goods
- Linking the A14 Motorway network to highway 106 "Ionica" Taranto-Reggio Calabria
- Expansion to existing port facilities
