Ferrobonus (modal shift incentive stimulation) is the incentive provided by the Government, by Stability Law for the 2016-2018 three-year period to support combined transport and trans-shipment on rail.
The aim of this instrument is to shift the traffic of goods from the road to the rail network through an incentive for the use of intermodal transport and trans-shipment transport to and from Italian logistics hubs and freight villages.
The beneficiaries of the incentive are users of intermodal and / or trans-shipment railway transport services and combined transport operators (MTOs) who commission complete trains to railway companies and undertake to maintain train traffic volumes in terms of train*kilometer and increase them during the incentive period.
Ferrobonus provides for the provision of a fairly modest contribution calculated on the basis of “train-kilometer”: to make this measure more attractive, the three Northwest Regions (Piedmont, Lombardy e Liguria) are jointly evaluating the adoption of an additional contribution, a sort of regional Ferrobonus, to be calculated on the portion of the route that interests the three regions, which aims to enhance the use of railways for the exchange of goods between the Ligurian ports and the Piedmontese
