Nicolini (Confetra): it would be unjustifiable for the Decree Simplifications did not deal with logistics and freight transport

We can no longer support - he denounced - the weight 30 billion red tape a year

"Don't take advantage of the Simplifications Act turning the sector around would be an unforgivable mistake.' This was underlined by the President of the Confederation Italian Transport and Logistics (Confetra), Guido Nicolini, recalling that "at the General States of the economy we have shared the theme with the government: we can no longer support - specified Nicolini - the weight of 30 billion charges bureaucracy a year. 133 are the existing administrative procedures, with the area of checks on goods, only in the port area, and in chief 13 different public administrations. If we look at the whole logistics sector, administrative requirements on goods and carriers 400, involving 30 offices or public bodies."

Also remembering that shipments, the beating heart of the logistics around the world are regulated by a Royal Decree of the 1942, and that from 2016 the sector expects the Unique Customs and Control Counter, Nicolini highlighted that "it would be unjustifiable to pass a decree-law Simplifications without dealing with the sector most harassed by the logistics and freight transport.'

"The big e-commerce platforms - noted Nicolini - have their distribution hub for Europe in the UK. Today with Brexit, they're obviously planning relocation given that there may be administrative barriers or trade between London and the Old Continent. Italy - denounced the president of Confetra -- she's cut off options, while still having labour and employment costs more competitive plants than France or the Netherlands, because the country offers no certainty about the timing of the release goods. Which is the same reason that goods destined for the Po Valley largely decide to scale the port of Rotterdam, and then get off by train or truck, rather than Ligurian ports. Either way: tens and tens of billions lost to the Country System in terms of turnover, tax revenue, work, wealth. Needless to invite us to "reinvent Italy" - concluded Nicolini - if then you are not able to understand and act on these platitudes."
