Italy - Trucking Rates & BMSB Update
Italy Trucking Charges – Increase in Rates
The cost for transport services throughout Italy are increasing, mostly attributed to heavy volumes, shortages of drivers and a lack of vehicle availability. Regrettably, as a result of these surges, we wish to inform you that Mondiale VGL will be increasing trucking rates in Italy by 8% with effect from 1st December 2021. This increase will apply to all trucking movements for both exports and imports.
BMSB Update – FCL ex Italy to New Zealand
As Italy goes into the winter period the temperatures have already started to drop. This inhibits the effectiveness of Gas treatment for BMSB so many providers are unable to fumigate containers during these cooler months. At this stage the Northern most ports are affected which includes cargo shipping ex Trieste and Venice.As BMSB target risk goods must still be treated offshore, this will restrict our treatment options to the following ;
- Heat Treatment
- Fumigation during transhipment in Singapore or Port Kelang with Methyl Bromide
where possible as not all carriers offer this option
Your Customer Services representative will discuss the options with you during the order management process.
