The Secretary for Infrastructure and Transportation and President of the General Council for automotive and logistics Bartolomeo Giachino presented the new National Plan of Logistics in Rome:
“We believe that the improvement of logistics from ports to freight village from the urban distribution of goods to shorter waiting times for loading and unloading together with a more convincing use of co-modality forms will allow us to attract new volumes of traffic now preferring the efficiency of logistics organisation in Northern Europe… [This will] help our country grow 0.3 to 0.5 points of GDP a year.”
The National Plan of Logistics was revised in light of the great changes brought about by the economic crisis and the new world economic balance. The plan aims to reduce the cost of logistic inefficiency by 10 points per year by 2011 (equivalent to EUR 4 billion). It draws attention to Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) as a fundamental instrument in supply chain management.
