Rome - “The government will use all the available tools to support this strategic project,” has said Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte during the question time in the House of Representatives. By “strategic project” Conte meant the establishment of the Simplified Logistics Zone provided for in the Genoa decree and concerning, first of all, the port of the Ligurian capital. “The area will allow operators” of the port of Genoa “to take advantage of incentives and tax relief”, said Conte.

The Logistics Zone should include tax breaks, implementing a bonus for transportation of goods via railway, suspension of the DURC (the Italian social security contribution compliance form), exceptional voluntary redundancy for artisan and commercial micro, small and medium enterprises, investments in tangible and intangible logistics to improve movement of goods, streamlining port traffic with interventions on customs and phytosanitary checks, and reducing duties on energy products for vehicles operating in the port terminals as well as anchoring taxes.
