Yet our companies are in the trenches: terminal ports, warehouses, distribution centres, hauliers, shippers, rail and air cargo operators they are facing operational blockades and administrative hurdles Huge. It is the frontline companies that guarantee every day logistics, industrial production and consumption, even in a condition of severe slowdown (often almost total paralysis - of major hubs national markets.'
