And not I mean only in terms of economic figures. This alliance will make the services of both companies even better, more reliable and more complete for our customers. Already today we are in effect an international company, not only in relation to the widespread presence on the European territory and for the coming from different countries of the people who make up our management, but there is no doubt that the strong presence in Germany, Europe's main logistics market, will give new impulse to the internationalization process that will be able to continue both for organic growth and for further acquisitions in other European countries'.
