In these days in fact - it has found the association - in all Europe the bad weather and the Siberian cold rage, but in Italy this only seems must have as only solution the firm suit of the rail shipments that in the other nations continue without slows down. To this it is necessary to add that on the node of Rome, in which remarkable single uneasiness for 15 centimeters of snow has happened, in spite of the days with sun of tuesday 27 and Wednesdays 28, the railway traffic goods still turns out blocked for the South Italy".

FerCargo has concluded announcing that the adherent railway enterprises to the association have communicated the intention "not to pay some type of penitentiary, previewed from informative Prospect of the Net, for all the services influenced from the current state of the Railway Net; the same ones are moreover reserved to act in the registered offices to protection of all the damages, directed and indirect, endured for interruption of activity and service".
