  • Honda Europe transfère une partie de son trafic automobile de Gand vers Zeebrugge
    A partir du 1er juin, Honda Europe, la filiale logistique du constructeur automobile japonais, acheminera les voitures produites au Royaume-Unie vers le continent via Zeebrugge. Cette décision est liée à l'objectif de réduire les délais de livraison et de mieux moduler la production dans l'usine de Swindon en fonction des commandes obtenues. Le port de Gand perd ainsi près d'un tiers du trafic de Honda, qui s'était élevé l'an passé à plus de 90.000 véhicules. Les importations de voitures en provenance du Japon continueront à transiter par Gand.
  • Anvers et le breakbulk: une table ronde qui se fait attendre...
    L'échevin du port d'Anvers Leo Delwaide a annoncé à maintes reprises l'organisation d'une table ronde afin de mettre au point une stratégie qui consisterait à créer les conditions favorables à une relance des trafics dans le conventionnel/breakbulk. Ce secteur a toujours constitué la force du port d'Anvers à l'échelle de l'Europe, mais s'est vu sérieusement compromis par les taux dérisoires que provoque la containérisation dans la plupart des trafics, plus particulièrement sur les relations Est-Ouest. Cette table ronde, on l'annonce très prochaine, mais quand aura-t-elle effectivement lieu? Et quelles sont ses chances d'aboutir au résultat souhaité?
  • Lufthansa réalise un meilleur résultat que prévu

  • Le réflexe national entrave l'élaboration d'une politique aérienne européenne
    Malgré dix années de libéralisation du transport aérien à l'intérieur de l'Union européenne - qui ont certainement porté leurs fruits dans différents domaines -, on est encore bien loin d'une politique aérienne européenne cohérente. Il s'agit pourtant là d'une condition indispensable pour donner aux compagnies aériennes européennes un rôle significatif au niveau mondial, affirme le rapport Sterckx, qui a été présenté jeudi dernier au Parlement européen.
