This work addresses the issue of transportation of perishable foodstuffs, regulated by the Agreement on the International Carriage of Perishable Foodstuffs and on the Special Equipment to be Used for such Carriage, also known as ATP Agreement, stipulated in Geneva on September 1st 1970 and recently reviewed on November 7th 2003. Italy adhered to the above mentioned Agreement through Law n. 264 of May 2nd 1977. The ATP Agreement imposes on those who transport perishable frozen and deep-frozen foodstuffs in general, among or within contracting States, the usage of tyre or rail transportation means able to guarantee the temperature control of the produces throughout the whole journey. In order to apply the ATP Agreement, the Directorate-General for Road Traffic and Privately Operated Transport Services (Direzione Generale della Motorizzazione Civile) has supplied all of its CPAs (Auto-vehicles Testing Centers) with climatic tunnel chambers. Since this is an issue strictly linked to Technical Physics, a collaboration between the Technical Physics Department and the Centre for Auto-vehicles and Devices Research and Testing of the Ministry of Transport is being promoted. Such a partnership is aimed at defining improving hardware and software tools to be implemented in the testing machineries.

Abstract

This work addresses the issue of transportation of perishable foodstuffs, regulated by the Agreement on the International Carriage of Perishable Foodstuffs and on the Special Equipment to be Used for such Carriage, also known as ATP Agreement, stipulated in Geneva on September 1st 1970 and recently reviewed on November 7th 2003. Italy adhered to the above mentioned Agreement through Law n. 264 of May 2nd 1977. The ATP Agreement imposes on those who transport perishable frozen and deep-frozen foodstuffs in general, among or within contracting States, the usage of tyre or rail transportation means able to guarantee the temperature control of the produces throughout the whole journey. In order to apply the ATP Agreement, the Directorate-General for Road Traffic and Privately Operated Transport Services (Direzione Generale della Motorizzazione Civile) has supplied all of its CPAs (Auto-vehicles Testing Centers) with climatic tunnel chambers. Since this is an issue strictly linked to Technical Physics, a collaboration between the Technical Physics Department and the Centre for Auto-vehicles and Devices Research and Testing of the Ministry of Transport is being promoted. Such a partnership is aimed at defining improving hardware and software tools to be implemented in the testing machineries.
