  • Kühne & Nagel demande davantage d’investissements dans le short sea
    A l’occasion de la sixième conférence shortsea “Short Sea Europe 2000”, qui a attiré quelque 150 intéressés à Duisbourg, Otto Schacht, sr vice president de Kühne & Nagel Allemagne responsable de la navigation maritime et fluviale, a donné un aperçu des activités de son entreprise dans le secteur du short sea.

  • La CCNR veut resserrer les liens avec l’UE
    La Commission centrale pour la Navigation sur le Rhin (CCNR) et la Commission européenne étudient actuellement comment resserrer les liens qui existent déjà entre eux. Une telle évolution est jugée nécessaire à l’heure où l’accent dans la politique des transports est mis de manière croissante sur l’intégration des différents modes. D’autant plus qu’au niveau européen, la CCNR peut être considérée comme l’organisme de référence en matière de navigation intérieure, compte tenu de l’importance de l’axe rhénan dans le réseau fluvial et du fait que les réglementations élaborées par cet organisme international sont souvent reprises ou servent d’exemple à ce qui se fait dans d’autres bassins fluviaux.
