Confetra, our industry is experiencing total chaos at cause of the coronavirus emergency

Confederation asks government for permanent task force mutual listening and structured coordination

At the end of today's meeting at the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport to examine the impact on the sector transport and logistics of the coronavirus emergency, the President of the Italian General Confederation of Transport and Logistics (Confetra), Guido Nicolini, has announced that The organisation has represented Minister Paola De Micheli the total chaos in which our industry is experiencing." Specifically, Confetra complained that the staff of Maritime, Air and Border Health Offices (USMAF) ports and airports "has practically halved, being officials and doctors been posted to check on passengers and crew. In addition, the goods in stock at the hubs is taking on dimensions from operational collapse, with hundreds of thousands of paperwork in stock.'

"Uncertainty," stressed Confetra's President - reigns supreme: from mandatory security devices to workers, I think in particular of those of the warehouses and transport, the threatened ordinances of individual regions in order to stop goods being used to transport goods, where the carriers have ever passed through the Red Zone. It's madness."

"Today," noted Nicolini, "as many as 11 pairs of trains. We are the sector that, at least in the immediate future, is suffering the setbacks of the coronavirus emergency. This meeting must turn into a permanent task force of mutual listening and structured coordination, it is not necessary and not enough episodic meeting."

Confetra also presented the Minister with her own document proposals to ask the government for compensatory measures in view of the current collapse in volumes and - the federal government has stated - even more so, the recession phase that is likely to open up in the months and is listed by analysts at between 15 and 25 billions of euros in GDP.

For Confetra, today's meeting was attended by, in addition to the President Nicolini, Vice President Vicar Silvia Moretto and the representatives of some of the federations Confederation: Fedespedi, Fedit, Assologistics, Assiterminal, Fercargo, Assoferr, Anama, Assopostale and Assohandlers.
