Hupac exhorts to giving continuity to the incentives for the development of the intermodal transport

Eder (LKW Walter): the transport on the road almost is completely deregolamentato, while that on track is still subject to limitations

The intermodal operator Helvetic Hupac exhorts to giving continuity to the incentives for the development of this modality of transport. Today to Zurich, in occasion of the event anniversary held in concomitanza with the shareholders' meeting of the company, the president of Hupac, Hans-Jörg Bertschi, he has manifested appreciation for the political support to the rail shipment of the goods, with Germany that in 2019 will reduce the costs of the railway traces until 50% for a period five-year-old allowing with the railway enterprises to invest and to improve the competitiveness, and with the incentives in existence in Italy and phase of argument in other countries, while regarding Switzerland two third party of the current state subsidies to the intermodal transport could be compensated from increases of productivity thanks to the galleries of base and to the corridor of 4 meters. Bertschi has evidenced that, however, a lack of support to the intermodal transport is outlined beginning from 2024. According to Hupac, a practicable solution would be that to reduce the current high prices much of the railway traces in the Swiss transit to the level of the Countries of the corridor - a measure of simple and not discriminatory support - has explained Bertschi - that it would send an immediate sign in favor of the modal transfer.

With regard to the rail shipment and intermodal on the transalpine axis north-south, taking part to the event anniversary of Hupac in quality of reporter Joris D' Incà, sector leader logistics near the center of Zurich of the society of American advising Oliver Wyman, has been stopped on the advantages of the gallery of base of the Gottardo. Of Inca it considers that the transport goods on track can value its strengths on long drafts as the axis north-south from the ports of the Sea of the North to the economic centers of the Italy north. However, the acceleration of the innovation cycles and the consequent increase of the productivity on the road will exercise a strong pressure on the intermodal transport. For being competitive in future - it has evidenced - the efficiency, the punctuality and the reduction of the times of transport are fundamental and have specified that, for the moment, the opening of the gallery of base of Gottardo 2016 still has in December not allowed a substantial saving of time and costs for these international transportations.

"In order to reduce the times of delivery and to improve the punctuality along the distances - it has found Of Inca - it is necessary to manage the long infrastructure the axis north-south an only source and to develop commercializzabile producing. To such fine, all the managers of infrastructures and involved terminals must join the efforts and put into effect an integrated management of the corridor infrastructure". "The competitiveness of the transport goods on track - it has added - can be reached only if the managers of the infrastructure concentrate themselves mainly on the specific requirements of the market, for example reducing the interruptions and increasing the average speed rather than to optimize in isolated way and own favor I use it of the ability and the activity of construction".

"If we want that the intermodalità is to the step with the road - has agreed Helmut Eder, member of the board of directors of the society road haulage Austrian and logistics LKW Walter - we must return it simple and efficient and to afford them to compete. The transport on the road almost is completely deregolamentato, while that on track are still subject to limitations, national norms and different parameters of production from country to country. The review of the directive EU 92/106 on the arranged transport - it has observed Eder - proposes to introduce ulterior burdens".

Eder has remembered that currently, for being considered arranged transport. the street draft from and for the intermodal terminals is limited to the suitable terminal more neighbor, while the proposal of the EU commission previews to limit the street draft to 150 kilometers between the place of origin or destination and the intermodal terminal, or to 20% of the distance total door to door. An extension possible to is determined conditions, but it demands the authorization of the single Member States. "The terminals - it has emphasized - could not be apt, disabled to offer the demanded destinations, the P400 profile or a sufficient frequency. These limitations completely are disowned to the road".
