Subsidies for truckers northern Italy for shift to rail
From now until the end of this year, road hauliers in the Italian province of Bolzano are subsidised if they put their cargo on rails. This financial incentive was offered last year and will be offered again this year, the authorities of the northern Italian region of Süd-Tirol / Alto Adige said.
The Ripertizione Mobilità traffic service has allocated 1.5 million euros for this. The aim is to shift cargo that is now transported via road to rail, in particular international shipments -accompanied or unaccompanied- between the Brenner and Salurn, both in northern Italy.
The scheme was also in force in the second half of last year. With a subsidy of 1.25 million euros from this province, 138,000 units (containers, swap bodies, trailers) were shifted to rail. A further 6,600 units were subsidised to move onto the Rollende Landstraße, in which complete combinations were put on the train.
The grant, which only applies to carriers based in Europe and operating in the Bolzano region, can be requested via firstname.lastname@example.org.
