«For truly sustainable freight mobility, we need to give adequate funding and continuity to measures such as the Marebonus and Ferrobonus, which have effectively ensured savings in terms of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, saving the state hundreds of millions of euros a year in external costs and relieving the pressure on Italy’s fragile infrastructure of millions of lorries». Domenico De Rosa, CEO of the SMET Group, Europe’s leading company in integrated logistics, reiterated this concept in Manduria, during the event organised by ALIS on “Transport. Logistics. Sustainability. Green and blue economy for the restart”. In the first talk, the chairmen of the Port System Authorities Andrea Annunziata, Pino Musolino, Sergio Prete and Ugo Patroni Griffi, together with the chairmen of the ALIS Commissions Matteo Arcese (European Affairs), Luigi D’Auria (International Transport), Domenico De Rosa (Maritime Intermodality and Motorways of the Sea) and Alessandro Valenti (Railway Intermodality) were moderated by Economy’s director Sergio Luciano and highlighted the needs of a strategic sector such as logistics, especially in the centre-south of Italy. And ALIS chairman Guido Grimaldi highlighted the urgent need to approve reforms and measures aimed at simplification, infrastructure modernisation and the renewed centrality of Italy as a strategic logistics platform at the heart of the Mediterranean. The second talk, which was moderated by Bruno Vespa, saw a stimulating confrontation between the Deputy Minister for Infrastructure and Sustainable Mobility, Alessandro Morelli, the Head of Cabinet of the Apulia Region, Claudio Stefanazzi, the President of the ALIS Commission on Interports and Strategic Logistic Hubs, Giancarlo Cangiano, and the President of the Casillo Group, Pasquale Casillo.
