The protest is proclaimed by the acronyms of the road transport cna fita, Confartigianato Trasporti, Fai, Fiap, Legacooperative and United Transport. The latter initialled the decision to postpone the sector's downtime.

In addition to the significant negative effects on the economic and entrepreneurial fabric of the whole northwest -- noted Confitarma -- will be inevitable the consequences also in terms of image and credibility of the Italy system for the repercussions on the handling of goods in and out of the three ports.'

Reiterating "the need to find with prompt solutions to safety problems ligurian motorways', Confitarma concluded by hoping to 'that the road haulage sector may review its decision while safeguarding the prevailing general interest of restart of the economy that just in recent weeks shows encouraging signs of recovery.'

With a great sense of responsibility therefore - announced the trade association - United Transport decided to suspend the protest that had been called for these days."
