  • L’Autriche propose à l’UE de diminuer le péage au Brenner
    Peu avant de démissionner (voir l’encadré), le ministre autrichien des Transports Michael Schmid a proposé à l’Union européenne de réduire de 20% le péage sur l’autoroute du Brenner et de le porter à 850 ATS (61,80 EUR). Rappelons que la Cour européenne de Justice a obligé Vienne à revoir à la baisse le prix du péage, jugé disproportionné.
  • La convention CMNI a été adoptée à Budapest

La nouvelle “convention de Budapest” a été adoptée à l’unanimité et “comble une lacune du droit international, car, contrairement aux autres modes de transport, il n’existait pas de convention internationale couvrant le contrat de transport de marchandises en navigation intérieure”.
  • British Airways augmente son bénéfice opérationnel de 125% et va vendre sa filiale Go

Et Air France pourrait être le futur allié européen de BA... hormis dans le secteur du fret aérien, déclare-t-on d’emblée chez BAWC.
  • Le CBRB fustige l’avarice du gouvernement néerlandais à l’égard de la batellerie
    Lors de la 72e assemblée annuelle publique du Centraal Bureau voor de Rijn- en Binnenvaart (Bureau central de la navigation rhénane et intérieure), qui a eu lieu à Delft lundi dernier et avait comme thème “La navigation intérieure estimée à sa valeur?”, le directeur Roos s’est demandé si un secteur qui prouve année après année pouvoir traiter plus de cargaisons, également sur courtes distances, et qui est de plus en plus utilisé par les chargeurs et organisateurs de transport, bénéficie de suffisamment d’attention politique. Le président van der Wyck a appelé le gouvernement à stimuler la navigation intérieure de sorte qu’elle soit en mesure de se situer au niveau des autres modes de transport. Le Bureau a en outre des craintes pour le maintien de l’Acte de Mannheim, qui garantit depuis des siècles la libre circulation sur le Rhin.
