Confport also calls for a unique direction to deal with the coronavirus emergency

Russian: a climate of confusion that risks doing more damage of the due

Conftransport-Confcommercio also calls for the establishment of a direction to enable the logistics and logistics sector transports to deal with the coronavirus emergency. The Secretary general of the organization, Pasquale Russo, pointed out that the logistics and transport system is in danger of jamming and has called on the government to intervene on local authorities to impose one direction at the national level, and to extend the measures economic and fiscal support also announced to companies are based outside the red zones.

"You can't reason," Russo explained, "for compartments ponds, here we're talking about a chain of work that doesn't work by segments. There is an interdependence between sites storage and transport, as well as there is among the manufacturing plants and transport, and if you stop the warehouses, the factories (some have closed because they are in red zones) and transport stops everything. There -- noted the Secretary Conftransport - a climate of confusion that threatens to do more damage than it should: the one among the measures taken by the government and the measures taken in order of some Regions and Municipalities is an insidious weave, which can logistically, to the warehouse blockage and, transport, which is already struggling to get the goods out and bring it to its destination."

"There are - recalled Russo - storage sites from which depends on the operation of the entire supply chain, which they find outside the red areas, and that, because of this, should be operational. But in several cases, employees residing in red zones, from which they cannot leave for go to work. We're talking about hundreds of workers. Say that those deposits are working in reduced ranks is a euphemism."

"We therefore ask the government," he concluded. Secretary-General of Confport-Trade - to consider, support for companies in the sector, including those that operate outside the red zone, and to intervene on local government to make some order amid the confusion that is being generated."

Always on the subject of initiatives to enable companies logistics to deal with the emergency, the president of Confederation-Federal, Luigi Merlo, urged the government to consider zeroing in on the anchorage fee and to reduce port fees for a few months. "The companies - Noted Merlo - are responding responsibly efficiency, but the babele of national measures and ordinances, municipal and regional authorities are likely to do enormous damage to the economy and at the same time as not providing adequate service to citizens.'
