Big hauliers’ strike in Italy week 44

25. October 2013

5 days general strike has been announced by the truck haulage unions in Italy, starting from October 28th. The strike has been announced to protest against government’s decision to reduce tax favourisation on fuel for haulage companies.

Negotiations held during this week have not lead to a satisfactory agreement, thereby strike has been announced .

Although our partners in Italy will not participate in strikes, the transportation will probably be obstructed, as previously there were roadblocks all over the country during the haulage unions strike, including the roads to and from Interportos and highways.

Moreover, there will be a national holiday at the end of the week.

Therefore delays up to a week in freight schedules are expected.
