Founded in 1949, the Federazione Italiana Autotrasportatori Professionali, FIAP, is the oldest trade union in Italy that protects the interests of companies transporting goods and people in Italy.
Their main objective is to encourage the growth of road hauliers, support their interests and bring them to the attention of national and international institutions in order to foster the dialogue necessary for the development and progress of the entire sector.
FIAP promotes the rights of road hauliers, both locally and at a national level, by actively participating in initiatives that protect the interests of road haulage companies.
Today the Federation is active in 14 Italian regions, has established a presence in the offices of partners in the sector, and also in the offices of some associated transport companies.
Joining IRU would allow FIAP to intensify international relations through direct and open dialogue with foreign associations from the same sector and further develop active participation in initiatives and activities on key relevant issues such as technical standards, labour and social protection matters, digitalisation of information, and safety in road traffic.
