The Rail Austrian Cargo will strengthen the railway connections with the ports of Trieste and Venice

Confetrra FVG, does not exist coming real dangers from investments foreign countries in the port of Trieste. Terminal TMT is equipped of other supplied means of handling from CVS Ferrari

Monday the Authority of Harbour System of Mare Adriatico Orientale will sign two memorandum of understanding in order to implement the railway relations between the port of Trieste and hinterland of reference in Europe the center-oriental. The first agreement will be signed by Andreas Matthä, managing director of railway group Austrian ÖBB, by Maurizio Gentile, managing director of Italian Railway Net (RFI), and from Zeno D' Augustin, president of the AdSP of Mare Adriatico Orientale. The second will be undersigned gives Of Augustin and by Erik Regter, executive member of the board of directors of Rail Cargo Austria (RCA), the society for the transport goods of the group ÖBB that in 2018 has enlivened 3,365 trains from and for the port of Trieste.

As well as with the port of Trieste the Rail Austrian Cargo will upgrade also the offer for the port of Venice having realized a triesttimanale service between the Venetian port of call and the German bimodale terminal of Duisburg. Through the port of Venice the service will be connected via ferry to the ports of Brindisi, Patrasso and Pendik (Istanbul), while Duisburg will act as gateway from and for markets of Scandinavia.

While the Trieste Marine Terminal (TMT), society that manages the container terminal to Pier VII of the port of Trieste, will be equipped of ulterior ten reach stacker that they will be supplied by piacentina CVS Ferrari. In the past couple of years the terminal has recorded increments to two figures of the containerized trade, with the 2018 that has been shut with a handling of 625.767 teu, in increase of +14.5% on the year precedence, on the 725,426 teu enlivened altogether from the port of Trieste (+17.7%). Trend of increase of the traffic in the harbour port of call that is continued in January 2019, month closed from the giuliano port of call with 58.947 teu, with an increase of +23.7% on January 2018.

To the increment of the traffic enlivened from terminal TMT it has contributed also the income in the terminalista society, that it is controlled by group T.O. Delta, of the shipowning group Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), customer of the company, than in 2015 has acquired 45% of the capital of the society ((on 16 September 2015).

If the harbour authority of Trieste and the operators of the port works in order to develop the ties of the port of call with its markets of reference and in order to ulteriorly increase the ability to the port, in these Trieste days is also in the middle of arguments relatively to the real one or supposed interest of China to invest in the giuliano port, design that could be soon esplicitato as a result of the relative agreement of understanding to the realization of the New Via of the Silk that the Italian government has previewed to agree with the executive of Beijing in occasion of the visit in Italy of Chinese president XI Jinping in program from the 21 on 23 March next ones.

On the issue Confetra is taken part today Friuli Venice Julia, organization to which is under responsibility ASPT- ASTRA Friuli Venezia Giulia Association Shippers of the Port of Trieste, Association Shipping agents Friuli Venice Julia and AN.TE.P. National association Terminalisti Harbour - Section Friuli Venice Julia. Referring to this debate, Confetra Friuli Venice Julia has found that "there is who has elucubrato of dangers for the Italian industries, other paventavano the perusal of Italy from its strategic infrastructures as the ports. All - it has observed the regional organization of the Confetra - then it is put in the same cauldron and flavored with other regarding topics the communication nets, the foundation of society public/private between Asian public bodies and partner for infrastructural works, even in exception to the dispositions of the Code of the contracts. Nobody, but, has been disturbed in order to ask which were the position or the proposals for the entrepreneurs that, daily, work and give job in the within of the harbour system of Trieste, today one of the more important ports of Italy for tonnage and first for railway traffic, above all international".

To such Confetra purpose Friuli Venice Julia it has evidenced that "it goes in the first place emphasized that the oorto of Trieste, as all the other Italian ports of call, is not on sale because this is materially and legally impossible. The marine Federal property is not on sale. It is corrected, instead, to speak about concessions based on law 84/94, that it previews rules, rights and duties. If the conditions established to the action of the signature of the concession are not respected, to the concessionaire the concession can be revoked. In the second place, it is useful to remember as with Trieste, without media clamori, the Harbour Authority has complyd with how much demanded from the laws care the harbour within, is in matter of harbour job (Slowly of the organic one) that of harbour Town development plan (approved of). To this draft of the only international Carriage free in Europe joins that, whose codified discipline is by right public international. We confide - it has exhorted Confetra Friuli Venice Julia - than who steers the Country is aware which instrument of international and commercial politics arranges and which of are (in the detail) the rules.

Relatively to the topic of the danger, for the national industry, of investments foreign countries in the Carriage free of Trieste, Confetra Friuli Venice Julia has observed that "it would be useful to understand elsewhere based on which concrete data it finds foundation, with the exception of happened how much in Europe. Perhaps - it has explained the confederal organization - it escapes that the port of Trieste serves for 85% the Center and East Europe (via railroad), while the hung Italian market for 15% approximately. Relevant they seem instead the considerations on the fact that the arrival of investor foreign countries will not be the panacea for the Italian ports: we share, in the first instance because if our port already grows to double figure, this has had mainly to the hard job of the privately-owned companies - harbour shippers, harbour terminalisti and back, shipping agents and operating generally - that they promote the giuliano port of call to international level, job facilitated from the choices operated from the Authority of Harbour System of Mare Adriatico Orientale. The alarm bell is also lacking in foundation, which sounded from the usuals very informed, on the danger of counterfeiting of the produced ones: this is an always existing risk, independently from the origin of the produced ones, to which preplaces to the control must obviate the state organs. Such controls regularly are carried out near the Free points of Trieste, garrisoned from the Agency of Customs and the Customs corps. If these considerations had to paralyze the logistic activities, it would be the end of the international commerce, comprised that of the Italian produced ones: this would be, in fact, a most serious danger for the voted Italian industry to the export".

According to Confetra Friuli Venice Julia, "concrete politics in order to maintain the control of the logistic chain do not preview "to shut themselves to curl" but, for example, the promotion of an increase of the industrial culture in the field of the international terms of sale of own produced ones. The terms of yield Incoterms® 2010 - it has evidenced the organization - would go deepened and, in order to create added value, it is suggested to set aside pervicacia of the homegrown entrepreneurs in selling the ex factory. The conviction to get rid once of every problem that the produced ones have exited from the gate of own plant, gives to other actors (of the transport and manufacturers) until 30% of the commercial value of the assets and the loss of the control on the ways that such producing cover in order to reach the destiny place".

"The game that we are playing - has concluded Confetra Friuli Venice Julia specifying that it is available of the decisive politicians and the other professional associations in order to discuss about these topics - is historical and it is played now, with multiple partner international. From it a part consisting of the economic and occupational future of the Independent Region Friuli Venice Julia and of part of our Country will depend. Losses of time or, worse still, improvisations, us we cannot afford".
