“THE ROUND FITS INTO THE SQUARE”
was our board member Roberto Spranzi on the occasion of the annual general meeting of the Bundesfachgruppe Schwertransporte und Kranarbeiten (BSK) e.V. on October 14, 2022 in Stuttgart. There, he took the opportunity to introduce the numerous members of the BSK to the possibilities of inland shipping as a mode of transport.
“Here I would like to ask you, because you all hold the strings of action in your hands:
What does inland shipping as a mode of transport have to offer you to make it more inte-resting for you?
Is the training or the job description of a freight forwarding and logistics services clerk still up to date without imparting knowledge about inland shipping?
Shouldn’t all modes of transport be taught equally in order to cover the entire range, the entire spectrum of transport, the logistics chain?
Inland shipping does not want to be a competitor for heavy lift operators and heavy lift forwarders.
What it does want, however, is to be part of the transport chain where it makes recognizable sense, where its use can conserve resources and infrastructure, where it is financially attractive.”
