FEPORT suggests to the politicians EU lend attention to the alarm of the ITF for the excessive concentration in the containerized marine transport

Bonz: "the strong competition between a container large number terminal prevails on a base of customers that is being shrunk"

The private societies that manage terminal in the European ports in recent days share the serious express worries from the International Transport Forum (ITF) on the evolution of the segment of the containerized marine transport that is characterized by an excessive concentration, with three sun shipowning alliances that by now together stop about 80% of the market(2 November 2018).

Commenting the analysis of the ITF in the course of the shareholders' meeting of the federation of private harbour terminalisti European FEPORT, than Wednesday to Brussels, the president of the federation has held, Gunther Bonz, has found that, examinee the recent relationship of the ITF on the impact of the alliances on the containerized marine transport, "we have once again stated that the harbour industry, is of public part that private, has realized enormous efforts in order to adapt itself. But - it has specified Bonz - it seems that these efforts are attended solo from the harbour field to the detriment of its profit and of the return from the investments that could be attended from new equipments or new public infrastructures. In any field, for any field - it has emphasized the FEPORT president, it would have to be a "debit and possession". This regards the rights, but also the duties".

Bonz has observed that, "in these last twenty years, on one side the normative picture has encouraged the consolidation and the horizontal cooperation and from the other, which you leave interested of the harbour field, we are pushed to compete. The strong competition between a container large number terminal - it has evidenced Bonz - prevails on a base of customers that is being shrunk. Which is - the president has wondered for the federation of the terminalisti - the coherence of the national regolators and the EU"

"The relationship of the ITF - it has continued Bonz - reflects with precision the truth of the current developments in the field of cargo handling. It is important to have in general terms of data and good information on the marine field, since facts and figures will allow with the authorities of regulation to better estimate the impact of the normative pictures that propose and adopt. We recommend lively - it has concluded the FEPORT president - than this relation is read carefully by the legislators and the responsibles of the policies that are currently preparing or see again the legislation".
