It is necessary, the union explains, to cope with the extraordinary increase in the cost of energy

"We continue to consider it necessary - he explained the union - that to cope with the consequences negative economic for the rail freight sector due to the extraordinary increase in the cost of energy, both support is needed for railway undertakings which have suffered a significant impact on their balance sheets determined by an exceptional extra cost on the entire sector».

'A reduction in the usage fee of railway infrastructure to compensate for these increased charges - underlined Uiltrasporti - is also necessary for not to frustrate the important goal of modal shift in transport of the goods that as established by the European Commission will have to be transferred 30% from rubber to iron by 2030 and which, on the other hand, in the absence of interventions would also risk negatively impact on employment levels in the sector causing job losses."
