The unified coordination of the Unatras (Union Association of TransportErs) has written to Paola De Micheli, Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, report the critical situation in which the category is located, affected by the impact of the economic crisis caused by the pandemic coronavirus, and to ask for the definition of some measures that -- has underlined Unatras in the missive signed by President Amedeo Genedani - are "vital for the companies we represent: artisans, micro, small and medium-sized entrepreneurs who represent the 90% of the transport sector.'

"Businesses," explains Unatras, "are exhausted because operate in very bad market conditions and must constantly have had the negative consequences on the economy. Unfortunately, the vast majority of hauliers, even those who have should be rewarded, continues to receive deferrations of payments of more than 120 days by their clients using the pretext of the Covid. The situation - complaint The National Union of Goods Transport Associations - is became unsustainable for thousands of businesses that risk from here soon to fail. The statistics leave no doubt: we are 65% of companies that can no longer cash in payments for the services carried out, half of which are at risk of default by September.'

On behalf of all the acronyms represented, namely Assotir, Sna Casartigiani, CNA-Fita, Confcraft Transport, Fai-Conftransport, Fiap and Unitai, Unatras therefore urged to "Approve permanently," Genedani specifies in the letter - some of the emergency measures on which we have recorded its verbal commitments in past meetings but still not seeing the light: the final inclusion in the Simplifications Act, as you have proposed, of the mechanism for strengthening the standard terms of payment for haulage services; the increase in the allocation for the restoration of the amounts of flat-rate deductions of undocumented expenses to the extent of 48 euro/day; republishing cost benchmarks exercise, for which we know its offices are busily working, despite the difficulties of finding data; the standard that includes trailers for the reliance of revisions trucks at private workshops so that they can be proceed with the enactment of the ministerial implementing decree; The definitively excludes the trucking industry absurd request for contributions from the Transports on which no regulatory function is exercised.'
