1 Freight villages among past, present and future Dr. Nicola Paradiso 1

2 Two-Face's Coin "There is no shortage in the world, the only problem facing us is logistics (Amartya Sen, Nobel Prize 1998) "A refrigerator is not a refrigerator, if it is located in Detroit, and is required to Houston" (J. L. Heskett) 2

3 Global Economy = Global Logistics Sustainability 3

4 As road networks become more congested, other modes of transport will need to take an increasing role. But coordinating the various modes requires more than just timetables - integration needs to span differing technical, operational and commercial cultures. 4

5 Early 90 The UIC s forecast Union Internationale Chemin de Fer The freight volume handled by European Railway Companies will double in the space of 20 years (Increase of transport demand) (UIC forecast) + 2,8 % vs + 0,8 % CONCLUSION Will the rail transport offer cover the increase of the total transport demand?

6 Early 90.. looking at the future A strong European Policy to avoid : Increase of congestion Increase of environmental problems Increase of the total transport costs Increase of the industrial products total costs Increase of the de-industrialization Decrease of the industrial sector competitiveness

7 Early 90 Solution Rail/Road/Sea Transport FREIGHT VILLAGES A new node inside the SUPPLY CHAIN

8 The FREIGHT VILLAGES are the only transport realities that offer the required infrastructures to develop: RAIL/ROAD TRANSPORT & SYNERGIC ACTIONS WITH THE PORTS That means INTERMODALITY

9 Organisational Structure Public--Private Partnership Public High investment costs Public Authorities support for granting planning permission in accordance with 1 policies on economic and territorial development 2 environmental policy

10 Infrastructures Warehouses with raised docking bays Warehouses with rail-road interchange Large-sized warehouses Public warehouses for storage Air-conditioned warehouses Intermodal terminal rail facilities

11 Services Customs District Post Office/Public telephones/bus service Areas for parking and loading/unloading operations Filling station with vehicle washing facilities

12 Advantages - 1 No heavy traffic inside the residential areas Strategic construction of logistics infrastructures Support to the Intermodality development Support to the Economic development

13 Advantages - 2 Connection with the road network Connection with the rail/intermodal network Transhipment availability Integrated logistics services Availability of information technology

14 Decrease of the total transport costs Decrease of the industrial products total costs Increase of the transport and service quality Increase of the industrial sector competitiveness Optimisation of vehicle productivity

15 "Interporto" (Freight Village): The Italian Definition Law no. 240 of "State measures to develop Freight Villages to be used for goods transportation and to foster Intermodality An organised set of structures and services, all of which are integrated with each other and focused on exchange of goods using different transportation modalities; it must in any case include a railway station capable of accommodating or set up trains, connected to Ports, airports and motorways or similar trunk roads. 15

16 "Interporto" (Freight Village): European Definition ECMT (European Conference of Ministers of Transport) Un-Ece (United Nations/Economic Commission for Europe) 2001 An agglomerate of independent firms and bodies related to or involved in goods transportation (couriers, forwarding agents, other transportation sector operators, customs offices), and in auxiliary services, including at least a railway terminal. This definition, in Europe, corresponds to Plateforme logistique in French and Logistic centre or freight village in English. 16

19 Geographical Location The Parma Freight Village is located in an ideal position, a true centre of gravity with respect to major European goods distribution centres, close to Trans-european network corridor 1 and 5 19

20 The Parma Freight Village Figures indoor outdoor Total 400,000 2,100,000 2,500,000 Total Surface sq. m Intermodal Area Surface sq. m 150, ,000 Terminal Container Area Surface sq. m 65,000 65,000 Overall Track Works Length Km

21 The Parma Freight Village Figures The Parma Freight Village employs permanently: 90 logistics, transports and shipment sectors firms 1600 operators Customs Revenue Offices 21

22 General Services Fuel-service Station Parking Lots Bank Counter Restaurant - Bar Hotel Customs Hot spot wi-fi 22

23 Goods Traffic in 2009: 7 million tons 2.5 million by railway 23

24 The Italian Freight Villages Network UIR- Unione Interporti Riuniti (Freight Villages Union) Unione Interporti Riuniti is the Italian National Association of Freight Villages. The aim of this association is to promote and develop intermodal goods transportation and to build up solid connections among freight villages. Web site: 24

25 The Italian network: some figures 23 FV 75 MILLION TONS OF GOODS moved in Companies of Trasportation And Logistics TOTAL EMPLOYEES (excluding induced labor) employees of INDUCED LABOR
