The representatives of road haulage and the automotive industrial and commercial chain – ANFIA, ANITA, FEDERAUTO, UNATRAS and UNRAE – deem it urgent to adopt a strategic plan to tackle the decarbonisation of road freight transport that is ambitious, realistic and economically sustainable from country system.
In these terms, the Associations addressed the Government, emphasizing the commitment of the road haulage companies and the automotive supply chain to wanting to make road transport of goods ever more competitive and sustainable, providing an accurate picture of the sector, which has a fleet in circulation between the oldest in Europe, with an average age of industrial vehicles of over 14 years of age, given that it is of serious concern in terms of environmental impact, efficiency and traffic safety.
ANFIA, ANITA, FEDERAUTO, UNATRAS and UNRAE have therefore identified the need relating to investments for the renewal of the vehicle fleet from a sustainable perspective in the figure of 250 million euros per year for the period 2023-2026, supporting such resources as, if accompanied by a overall rethinking of the instruments currently in force, can represent a stimulus to the competitiveness and operational sustainability of national companies, in view of the ambitious climate objectives set by Europe for the coming years.
The Associations have prepared an inter-associative document with the details of the proposals, which are
ready to present and exhibit to the Government.
