Dangerous goods, ANITA denounces the unsustainable increase in costs for road

The association appeals to the government and the commission to take note of the state of agitation from industry

"The costs and demands from the buyers of the downward revision of prices have become unsustainable for companies that transport dangerous goods by road for hire or reward." The alarm was launched by Anita, the association's largest trucking companies in Italy and represents 60% of large operators who transport dangerous goods (oil products and chemicals)

The Association would therefore appeal to the representatives of the government and the commission to take note of the state of agitation from industry.

"Transportation in the ADR (Accord Dangereuses Route), named the Europe Agreement concerning the international carriage of dangerous goods by road - ANITA stresses - is a crucial sector for the economy of the country with 20,000 employees and 18,000 trucks used and handled , according to the latest ISTAT figures, accounting for 9% (132 million tons per year) of the total cargo traffic in Italy.A high-risk sector, which includes flammable solids and liquids (to the extent of 76%), gas (15%), corrosive (7%), toxic (0.8%), products subject to explosive, radioactive, infectious, liable to spontaneous combustion or release of flammable gases (in percentage of 1.2%). One area that the danger of transporting products requires high standards of safety and quality, significant investment in vehicles and driver training and insurance coverage. Elements, often underestimated, contributing to the increase in costs for businesses which operate under ADR. "

Therefore ANITA asks the executive and the parties involved in the supply chain "to deal with this situation to avert possible initiatives implemented by companies in the sector that - explains the association - could have irreparable consequences on the country."
