Feport invites the new European legislators see again the exemptions for category for the containerized shipowning consortia

Bonz: the thing worse that it could happen would be that DG COMP considers that it is not necessary to modify the regulations because currently the hires of the marine transport are many low

Feport (Federation of European Private Port Companies and Terminals) has restated the necessity of a review of the Consortia Block Exemption Regulation (TO DRINK), relative the European regulations to the exemption for category of the consortia of containerized companies of navigation, norm of which in the past few months main organizations of the shipowning field they have asked the extension and of which the representations of the harbour enterprises and the logistics have instead sped up the abrogation(on December 21, 2018 and 19 February 2019).

In occasion of the assembly anniversary of the federation of the European private terminals operator, held slid friday to Burgas, in Bulgaria, Feport has adopted a Manifesto that evidences the main topics of greater importance for the European enterprises that enliven goods in the European ports and that it gives job to beyond 390 thousand people, document that is defined which means in order to start a constructive dialogue with the new deputies and commissioners who will have to propose and to adopt laws in next the five years.

One of the points carried to the attention of the new legislators of the EU is exactly regulations 906/2009 of exemption for category. "The review of DRINKING for the consortia - it has emphasized the president of Feport, Gunther Bonz - represents a good example of a sector instrument that has an impact that goes very to beyond the industry that benefits some. This - it has explained - is the reason for which it is essential to modify the regulations and to confer greater clarity and legal certainty to the companies of navigation, the suppliers of harbour services and the owners of the goods. The thing worse that it could happen - has found Bonz - it would be that the Head office of the Competition considers that it is not necessary to modify the regulations because currently the hires of the marine transport are many low, because of the excess of ability in the market of the container. An approach of that sort - it has evidenced the president of Feport - would be harmful as the efficiency and the reliability do not hold account of dynamics of the field of the logistics of the marine transport let alone of other indicators which".

Remembering that harbour and terminalisti operators are suppliers of services to the field of the marine transport of line and that these harbour operators need parity of conditions when draft to negotiate itself with own customers, Bonz has observed that the acquisition of harbour services by shipowning alliances formed by more companies than navigation that benefit of the category exemptions TO DRINK he would not have to be allowed as creates a situation of imbalance to the action of the negotiations: "the consortia TO DRINK - it has specified - would not have to result in the weakening of the legal power of the suppliers of harbour services".

In particular, according to Feport, it is necessary that the European legislators make clarity on this that the regulations allow with the shipowning consortia to make and not to make. "We hope - it has concluded Bonz - than the future strategy for the field of the marine logistics will reflect the expectations that we have expressed in this contribution and we are anxious to cooperate with new eurodeputati elect, with the new commissioners and their staffs".
