Spediporto, the port of Genoa seems exited from the critical phase

The association of the shippers emphasizes that but state of health of the port of call could be compromise from the deficiency of technical staff

All, from months, are worried to touch the wrist of the port of Genoa for knowing if he is survivor to the consequences of collapse of the highway viaduct happened Morandi last August, vital bridge for the practicability of the capital of Liguria and the street connections of its port with the markets. If in the past few months the association of the genoese shippers was hardly able to perceive heartbeats hearts and launch perhaps premature alarms on critical state of health of the harbour port of call, now Spediporto seems to have begun distinguished to perceive pulsations that second the association are clearly a sign of the escaped danger.

"After 2018 that had been shut with a heavy consuntivo - numbers of Spediporto they speak less about a loss on 2017 of beyond 8% and a sign than from on 14 August it had characterized the closing every month, comprised January 2019 that had recorded heavy a -4% - law on the last medical bulletin of the association of the genoese shippers - to February port of Genoa raises the head and from the data collected from Spediporto the positive sign returns finally on the genoese docks. With a +3.00% of average between traffics import and export (the data is a survey February 2018 on same very meaningful month 2019 and therefore) the traffics returns to reward the engagement of the port of call and its operators".

"To drag the resumption - Spediporto explains - it has been the increase of the traffic export that it has marked an average of +6% and that ago therefore very to hope also for a recovery of the manifacturing Italian in the exports (the last data diffused from the Istat on the conjunctural variation of the Italian foreign trade with the extra countries EU, relative to the month of January 2019, indicates an increase of +5.9%, ndr)".

Manifesting satisfaction for this given, the president of Spediporto, Alessandro Pitto, it has emphasized that "in the course of the months the engagement of all the acts and of the administrations has been that to work to a full recovery of efficiency and reliability. This engagement - Pitto has stated - evidently is comprised by the customers of the supported port and also, more in general terms from a good month for the export Italian". "We must - it has evidenced Pitto - continue to work on this road, but we must accelerate the step on simplifications, relief (ZES and ZLS) and efficientamento of many services".

If the sick one - the association specifies - gives signs of resumption, however medical staff seems not to be sufficiently equipped in order to assure the full cure of the patient: "we are worried - it has clarified the general manager of Spediporto, Giampaolo Botta - in relation to the deficiency of staff of many fundamental administrations for the performances of the port". "We had already marked during the phase of drawing up of the Genoa Bill - Blow specifies - the worrisome deficiency of technical staff in many strategic offices: customs, doctors and technicians for the office of Marine Health, veterinaries for the PIF of the Port and adequate equipments".

According to the association of the shippers, "many central directions are neglecting the effects that the absence of staff in the more important will have Italian port". "This - Spediporto denunciation - is very dangerous. Only thanks to the great engagement of the current structures, reduced to the historical minimums, it has been possible to go ahead but precariato and the retirements to short will be profitable impossible to guarantee the control service in the times that the customers demand. If so it were - the association concludes understating that a new aggravation of state of health is possible - the traffic could be ulteriorly penalized. It would be a trip to the efforts up to now made in order to recover with hard work competitive ability".
