The British FTA exhorts the government to reduce the octrois on fuels in order to block the drastic increase of the failures in the field of the road haulage

The measure - it has emphasized the association - will give also a remarkable impulse to the economy of the United Kingdom

The British association of the enterprises of the logistics Freight Transport Association (FTA) has exhorted the government of London to reduce the octrois on fuels in order to stop the drastic increase of the road haulage societies that declare failure.

The official data - it has emphasized the association - show that between July and september slid the number of the road haulage enterprises that have introduced failure request are almost the double quantity regarding that of the correspondent period of 2016 and have reached the higher level of last the five years. , In particular in the quarter summery last year 32 societies of airborne had declared failure, while in the quarter July-september of this year they have been 59.

The Freight Transport Association has evidenced that the pull-up of the failures reflects the impact on the field of the increase of the cost of the fuel and the little rose-colored economic perspectives of the field of the logistics.

"This increase of the failures of the logistics enterprises - it has found the responsible for national politics of the FTA, Christopher Snelling - would have to make to sound an alarm bell for the government. Even if the numbers are still relatively contents, they demonstrate a dramatic radical change of direction for the field of the transport of the goods. In last the six years the number of operators who have declared failure has gone gradually being reduced. This sudden increase is extremely worrisome and must be faced with urgency".

The association therefore has invited the chancellor of the Chessboards, Philip Hammond, to program a cut of the octrois on fuels at least three pairs pence for every liter of diesel oil, measure - it has emphasized the FTA - than will not only give breath to the field of the road haulage, but it will give also a remarkable impulse to the economy of the United Kingdom.

The Freight Transport Association has observed that the cost of the diesel oil constitutes about a third party of relative the operating costs to a truck from 44 tons and that the increase of the price of the diesel oil of a single penny can increase of 470 pounds the annual cost of employment of a vehicle. The association has remembered that many of the companies own associates have a hundred fleet or also of thousands of trucks and an increment of the octrois on the fuel has a remarkable impact on the operating margins of the companies.

"The increase of the price of the fuel - Snelling has explained - has an impact negative on the operators of transport of all the dimensions. For the larger fleets, also you increase contained can be translate in ulterior thousands of pounds of costs to join budget. For the small enterprises, than many contents often have profit margins, any increase of the cost of the fuel can dangerously push them towards budgets in loss".
