Everything was discussed during the Shipping, Forwarding & Logistics meet Industry convention, promoted by Assologistica together with Alsea and The International Propeller Clubs.
"Volumes are increasing in the fresh produce logistic sector, however margins remain a problem. But the responsibility is not always of retailers. At Assologistica, we try to favour the cooperation between customers and operators to avoid price wars favouring quality at a fair remuneration," explains Assolgistica Vice-President Massimiliano Montalti.
Assologistica President Andrea Gentile explained that there are still a few problems due to the number of companies that haven't survived the recent recession. "Not to mention the fact that Italy is behind when it comes to infrastructure and bureaucracy. In addition, mentality/awareness is also causing problems, as working as a network must become a priority on all levels."
