  • AviaPartner va assurer à Schiphol l'assistance au sol des vols Oneworld
    L'alliance Oneworld a décidé de confier à AviaPartner l'ensemble des activités d'assistance au sol de ses membres sur l'aéroport de Schiphol. Le contrat, le plus important jamais signé par le groupe de handling belge, représente une valeur de 30 millions d'EUR.
  • Stena Line recule sur (presque) tous les fronts
    Le groupe suédois Stena Line a subi de plein fouet les effets de l'abrogation des ventes hors taxes sur les liaisons maritimes à l'intérieur de l'Union européenne en date du 1er juillet de l'année dernière. Son chiffre d'affaires sur l'ensemble de l'exercice 1999 a chuté de 7,55 à 6,96 milliards de SEK et son bénéfice opérationnel de 152 à 6 millions de SEK. Le résultat avant impôts est resté fortement déficitaire à 496 mio. de SEK (contre 324 mio. de SEK en 1998). Le nombre de passagers ayant emprunté un des services ferry du groupe en Scandinavie ou sur les routes desservant les îles britanniques a diminué de 6%. Mais les trafics de voitures et de fret se sont inscrits en légère progression (si l'on ne tient pas compte de la ligne Halmstaad-Grenaa entre la Suède et le Danemark, fermée fin 99). A l'exception des résultats financiers, ces chiffres ne tiennent pas compte des résultats enregistrés dans le secteur transmanche, où le groupe suédois coopère dans la joint-venture P&OSL.
  • Rhin d'Acier: la Belgique dit oui à une étude d'incidence pour une mise en service accélérée
    La récente rencontre entre les ministres néerlandaise et belge des Transports Tineke Netelenbos et Isabelle Durant concernant le Rhin d'Acier a fait quelque peu avancer le dossier. Du côté belge, on accepte la demande néerlandaise d'une étude d'incidence sur l'environnement (MER) concernant le passage de trains sur le tracé historique, donc à travers la "zone de silence" du Meinweg. Mais cette étude sera menée plus promptement que ce qu'avançaient les Néerlandais: elle devrait être terminée pour 2001 au lieu de 2003. En conséquence, les trains pourraient déjà circuler fin 2001, début 2002.
  • La BGL met Schröder en garde contre l'impact des écotaxes sur le transport routier
    La Bundesverband Güterkraftverkehr Logistik und Entsorgung (BGL) demande une intervention du Chancelier allemand Schröder pour empêcher que de nombreuses entreprises de transport ne doivent fermer leurs portes et pour éviter des milliers de pertes d'emploi suite à la hausse de la taxe sur le diesel comme le prévoit la réforme des écotaxes. Le syndicat ferroviaire GdED plaide de son côté pour une imposition encore plus forte du transport routier en vue de favoriser le rail.
