In recent years, the logistics sector is undergoing increased awareness and consequent transformation. Both the pandemic and the situation in Eastern Europe have changed lifestyles and business, leading to new requirements, highlighting the importance and strategic nature of this sector. In particular, in a country like Italy, which relies heavily on the export of 'Made in Italy' and agri-food products throughout the world, the transport of goods must be the last step in a path of quality that manufacturing companies promote with their products. 'Italian industry,' explains Alessandro Peron, Secretary General of FIAP, Federazione Italiana Autotrasportatori Professionali (World Road Transport Organisation), 'is beginning to understand the role that logistics can play in supporting the development of the economy: the perfect addition to our 'Made in Italy' production which the whole world envies us for. But changes need to be made. The transport sector is currently very fragmented. Among the 80,000 companies operating in the country, only just over 500 employ more than 100 people and have the strength to offer all-round logistics services, the others are very small, almost artisanal and are simply performers, unable to cope with change".
The situation calls for a change of perspective in order to be able to seize the growth opportunities that are presenting themselves, but in order to do so, the market and its professionals have to be prepared. “The sector must be structured and make use of managerial figures and entrepreneurs with the right vision and the skills necessary to welcome and manage the transformations underway: I am not just talking about the energy transition, the issue of infrastructure and intermodality, but also related technologies. It is a necessary transformation and a great opportunity that the logistics sector must seize in order to consolidate its role as a strategic asset in the national economy".
It is therefore time to "create a culture" of logistics to build a new generation of highly qualified and specialised operators who can manage the demands of the sector and accompany it through the change. But also to bring out structured Italian companies that can compete with international operators.
“In this context, Transpotec Logitec offers an important platform for everyone involved. For companies that offer services, for those who perform them and for those who use them, it is a time to team up and network, exchange knowledge and make themselves known, an opportunity to tell the many successful business stories we have in Italy. There is a lot of work to do, but together we can really build "different logistics".
To build the new Italian logistics approach together, come to Transpotec Logitec from 8 to 11 May 2024 at Fiera Milano.
