Assotir, increases of the octrois on the diesel oil and the Vat would inflict a hard blow to the road haulage

The association has manifested worry also for the current phase of political stall

The association of the Assotir road haulage has launch an appeal to the next minister of Infrastructures and of the Transports perceiving that an increase of the octrois on the diesel oil would be dramatic for the field and that of the Vat it would have effects negatives for the consumption. Evidencing that the road haulage represents a fundamental field for the Italian economy (it is worth 4% of the GDP), the general secretary of the association, Claudio Donati, has remembered that "in Italy the taxes on the fuel pile already to 62%, figure record in the EU. Servants instead - she has found - a transport costs defined from an authority third".

Assotir has manifested worry also for the current phase of political stall that worries the world of the road haulage waiting for the takeover of a new government. The association is worried however that, as looked on to from various observatories, between the first provisions of the new government we could be increases of the VAT and the octrois on fuels in order to make to square the accounts of the State. "It would be - it has restated Donated - a disaster. Currently, on the cost of a liter of diesel oil the incidence of the taxes (VAT and octrois) is of beyond 62%: on an euro paid to the pump, 62 cent go to the State. If we consider the vehicles to which it comes allowed the compensation of the octrois (vehicles from Euro 3 with Euro 6), these, however, pour to the State about 56% of every euro spold in diesel oil. Are exaggerated figures: Italy, between all the Countries of the European Union, is what it imposes the highest level than octrois".

Assotir has remembered moreover that in ten months, from July 2017 last April, the price of the diesel oil is increased of beyond 8% and - it has observed Donated - the probable effects of an ulterior which had increase to new taxes would be devastating: "first of all - it has explained - many small enterprises would not hold the collision and would fail. In the second place, for it has the possibility, this decision would be an incentive to make refueling abroad, where the diesel oil costs less own thanks to smaller the fiscal cargo. Moreover, to trare of advantage it would be also organized gangsterism, since already today beyond 10% of the diesel oil that circulates in Italy is of illegal origin, with unavoidable consequences on the atmosphere".

The association has emphasized moreover that the increases of the costs are not absorbed by the market: "the transport rates are firm, if not quite in light decrease, and simply become an increase of costs at the expense of the conveyor".

For Assotir, the problems are however multiple on which the next government it will have to take part in order to pep up the field of the road haulage: "there are - it has specified Donated - hoary problems by which we are plagued, as the impossibility to see itself recognized a fair emolument of the carried out activity. For Assotir the battle for having a transport costs is fundamental defined from an authority third; this would allow to have a point of reference is for the carrier that for its outsourcer, to the aim to safeguard safety of the market above all and its transparency, as has recently established also the Constitutional Court".
