Enterprises of shipment and logistics and terminal operator invite the EU commission to repeal Regolamento of exemption for category for the containerized marine consortia

In alternative CLECAT, ETA, EBA, EBU, ESO, IWT, ESC, FEPORT, UIRR and GS speed up a wide review of the normative picture

Ten primary international associations that they represent shipment houses, enterprises of logistics, terminal operator and companies of the marine and intermodal transport have exhorted the EU commission to repeal Regolamento n. 906 /2009 of exemption for category for the containerized marine consortia, normative that will remain in vigor until on April 25, 2020 and that it is currently object of a procedure of activated appraisal five months from the Commission in sight of its expiration(on 27 September 2018).

According to CLECAT (European Association for Forwarding, Transport, Logistics and Customs Services), ETA (European Tugowners Association), EBA (European Boatmen's Association), EBU (European Barge Union), ESO (European Skippers' Organisation), IWT (International Warehousing & Transport), ESC (European Shippers' Council), FEPORT (The Private Federation of European Operators), UIRR (International Union for Road-Rail Combined Transport) and GSF (Global Shippers' Forum), the abrogation of Regolamento is indispensable unless a wide review of the normative picture is not adopted that clarifies the current Regulations that assure to the marine companies that operate line services exemptions regarding the European norms on the competition.

In fact for the ten organizations - that they have diffused today a combined note in order to motivate their position - the happened developments of the market in last the five years justify a groundbreaking review of the normative picture, recovering land as this is not made after 2009. CLECAT, ETA, EBA, EBU, ESO, IWT, ESC, FEPORT, UIRR and GSF have emphasized that the current norm has become obsolete since the majority of the marine carriers work in alliances and that the concentration of the market is in phase of increase.

Moreover the ten associations have evidenced that a condition important in order to assure the exemption, and that is that which guarantees benefits to the customers, more is not satisfied as - they have found - neither the quality of the service neither the productivity is improved over the years and, instead, the users of the services of marine transport of line and from their suppliers of services they have suffered from a more and more unbalanced situation of market from when the marine carriers have entered in important come to an agreement of cooperation.

To such purpose CLECAT, ETA, EBA, EBU, ESO, IWT, ESC, FEPORT, UIRR and GSF they have remembered that the recent relationship "The impact of alliances in container shipping" of the International Transport Forum (ITF) has concluded that "the impact of the alliances on the system of containerized transport in its complex seems to be mostly negative"(on 2 November 2018).
