Alsea denunciation that the controls on the goods imported are causing indefensible delays

Schiavoni: we pay and in more we receive in exchange an ill service that risks to stave off traffics to us

Alsea, the Lombardic association of the shippers and the haulers, denunciation that the activities of control on the goods imported are causing indefensible delays in the deliveries and that, consequently, the Lombardy suffers and risks to lose traffics.

Emphasizing that "the controls to protect the health publish are essential and every State would have to consider them priority for the protection of the citizens, guaranteeing that the offices you premail are structured and supplied of every instrument necessary in order to carry out their function at best", the association evidences at least that however this is the theory, "because in practical - Alsea explains - from the various time this it is not happening, regarding the Offices of Marine, Aerial Health and of Frontier (USMAF) in Lombardy".

"That they do not come true the controls - Alsea clarifies - but are not obvious that in order to guarantee the primary good (the human health with controls right taken care of) slow down the activity of the operators. The international traffics - the association finds - demand fast times, above all when it is spoken about air shipments. Instead from by now various months the goods that must be subordinates to Sanitary Authorization they endure indefensible delays, with mean times of attended (for goods not perishable) of about four days. Obviously always that the goods do not have to go in physical verification, otherwise the times become ulteriorly"

The association remembers that "in Lombardy they are managed beyond 30% of the controls on the goods that enter in Italy" and that "in order to carry out these grindstones of job the Office for the Lombardy counts on a force job very two doctors and six technicians".

"We have complained the uneasiness of the operators to the competent offices on the territory - explains the president of Alsea, Betty Schiavoni - but the answer has been, comprehensibly, than with the staff that they have on hand they do not succeed to make more. Our Confederation (Confetra, of which Alsea it is the territorial association of Milan, ndr) is then revolt to the Health ministry and also in this case it is answered that they do not have staff. It is - Schiavoni denunciation - an unacceptable answer. Little people in Lombardy would be enough in order to exceed the problem; as it makes yourself to say that they do not have resources if every practical one that the operators anticipate must be accompanied from a payment of various tens of euro"

"We pay - Schiavoni emphasizes - for a service (than already to our warning we would not have to pay, since would have to be at the expense of the general fiscality) and in more we receive in exchange an ill service that risks to stave off traffics to us. The situation has become indefensible so much so that the operators are various who are thinking to divert these traffics on other ports and airports".

"Come Alsea - Schiavoni still remembers - in the public assembly last year we already launch an alarm on this topic, signaling as a normal turnazione for vacation was enough to delay the normal activity of the USMAF. Today the situation instead improving is gotten worse, so much so that the delays are not more irregular but chronic".

"We ask the Health ministry - the president of Alsea concludes - to make some thing: to say that they do not have staff is an unacceptable answer. Also we have already written to the new regional city council member Infrastructures, Transports and Sustainable Mobility, lawyer Claudia Maria Terzi, so that he takes part, guaranteeing the cover of the criticalities with some separations from the ASL. Certainly it would be a buffer solution but at least we would exceed the emergency wishing that in the next few months the new government adopts the provisions necessary in order to equip of the staff the Lombardic offices. The alternative? Italy will lose these traffics and the Europe North will thank".
