(ANSA) – ROME, JUL 31 – A jump in the cost of electricity by 210% in the first quarter of the year compared to the same period of 2022 with an impact of extra costs on the rail freight transport sector of 40-50 million EUR. It is what Fermerci estimates that he therefore asks for an emergency intervention (in analogy to those adopted in favor of road transport, such as the 500 million euro support fund or the cut in excise duties on fuels) and a series of other reforms, on , investments and training, for a new ‘iron care’ that revises that of 2017. The first immediate point is that of energy: the companies in the sector in fact cannot access the current contributions established by the government for companies as they have not been purchased energy by traders but by the infrastructure manager underlines the association.

In the paper discussion proposed to its stakeholders and which will take the form of a document to be presented to all political forces, the association chaired by Clemente Carta underlines among the points on which to intervene the last railway mile, the Ferrobonus, the digitization of processes, Training of operating personnel, incentives for the purchase of locomotives and rolling stock, revision of the implementation procedures to support railway logistics. “These interventions are necessary for the relaunch of the railway logistics sector and fundamental for the achievement of the objectives set by the European Green Deal”, recalls the president Carta.
