“Marebonus” and “Ferrobonus” to start by May

Rome - “We’re satisfied with the sense of urgency and availability shown by the Ministry of Transport in relation to the needs of the haulage and logistics sector, as, by securing the funding destined for the sector in 2018 and 2019, it has recognized the sector’s fundamental role” it said from ANITA

Rome - “We’re satisfied with the sense of urgency and availability shown by the Ministry of Transport in relation to the needs of the haulage and logistics sector, as, by securing the funding destined for the sector in 2018 and 2019 (236 and 240 million, respectively), it has recognized the sector’s fundamental role in the Italian economy, and at the same time has restored some sense of assurance to businesses.” That much was expressed in a statement released by Italy’s association of road haulage companies, ANITA.

During the meeting with undersecretary Simona Vicari and with the Head of the Cabinet of the Ministry, Mauro Bonaretti, some important measures were taken to allow companies to regain competitiveness: an increase in the height of the vehicles to 4.30 metres, and allowing trucks involved in intermodal transport to carry only a copy of the valid vehicle registration on board; the implementation of the Marebonus and Ferrobonus inter-modal transport incentives which, seems imminent as by the end of May the decrees making them law are expected to be officially published; the option of opting out of taxation for drivers on routes outside Italy, a mechanism which, if rejected by EU authorities, will aim at keeping it at the minimum tier-level.
