By Catherine (ALIS): no to the changes to the Relaunch Decree do not protect the right to self-production in ports

The new requirements, he complained, would be real obstacles to the institution of self-production, especially for ships engaged in the Highways of the Sea

The Logistics Association of Sustainable Intermodity (ALIS) complained that some of the amendments tabled in the conversion into law of the so-called Relaunch Decree, and in particular article 199-bis heading "Port Operations Standards", would be against the right to self-production of operations Port. "ALIS - explained the Director-General Association, Marcello Di Caterina - expresses concern in the amendments to the Bill for the Conversion Maritime Transport Revival Decree, which in fact amendment Article 16 of Act 84/94 by introducing specific permits for the operation of port operations, from when the ships arrive or depart."

"We are opposed to the approval of these changes - catherine's pointed out -- as we believe that they do not protect the right to self-production, guaranteed to economic operators Article 9 of antitrust legislation, Act 287/1990, and therefore also to shipowners in the maritime sector, but, on the contrary, represent a real step backwards for the entire port Italian language.'

"The introduction of the new requirements contained in the text Amendment to issue specific permissions port operations - clarified the director ALIS - predicts in the first place that we can proceed with self-production only if in the same port there are no authorized companies under Articles 16 and 17. In addition, today's permits lasting up to four years should be provided to each touched and would be required within 10 days from the date of the alleged arrival of the ship. Finally, the today's rent commensurate with the volumes of traffic would become much more as well as the number of stopovers, reaching EUR 1,500 per stop for ships over 100 metres."

"It is clear ," pointed out Di Caterina, that new requirements would be real obstacles institute of self-production, especially for ships engaged in Highways with high frequencies. All this would result in a profound damage to the competitiveness of the maritime sector as well as rising costs for airlines shipowners, since they would find themselves unable to have their own staff and, as a result, would create abuses of a dominant position.'

"ALIS, understanding that at a time of great difficulty for the whole country it would be appropriate and reasonable for a solution that avoid new concessions or initiatives for the autonomy of operators sector and therefore does not compromise the existing situation - concluded Di Caterina - calls for a reformulation of the intervention proposed in the conversion of the relaunch decree-law, which would be detrimental both organizationally and in terms of causing a serious impact on the volume of trade along maritime routes, employment in the sector and the use of modal conversion and the Highways of the Sea, mode of transport promoted with conviction not only by our association, but also and above all by the Union European Union."
