  • Ford va cesser de produire la Fiesta à Dagenham
    Ford Europe devrait confirmer aujourd'hui de façon officielle ce qui avait déjà été prédit à plusieurs reprises dans des documents internes officieux, à savoir que 1.500 postes supplémentaires vont disparaître dans son usine de Dagenham. Ford va "concrétiser" ces plans en arrêtant la production de la Fiesta à la fin de l'an prochain. Comme déjà annoncé, une des lignes d'assemblage de la Fiesta sera supprimée cet été, ce qui se traduira par la perte de 1.500 emplois. Vu que la production de l'Escort à Halewood sera également arrêtée à la fin de l'année et que l'usine sera transformée pour la production de petites Jaguar, plus aucune voiture Ford ne sera produite au Royaume-Uni. Cela signifiera aussi la fin des exportations vers notamment Zeebrugge. Pour Cobelfret Ferries, ce trafic a porté l'an passé sur 65.580 véhicules.
  • Le tunnel sous l'Escaut occidental à mi-chemin
    Les retards encourus dans les travaux de creusement du tunnel sous l'Escaut occidental sont pratiquement rattrapés. La machine de forage avance à une vitesse de 12 m par jour sous l'Escaut occidental entre Terneuzen et la rive nord, où le tunnel débouchera dans l'Ellewoutsdijk.
  • Anvers: comment freiner l'impact du container sur certains trafics?
    Si le port d'Anvers maintient sa position de leader en Europe du Nord dans le secteur du conventionnel/breakbulk, il n'en est pas moins évident que ledit secteur est en perte de vitesse. Certes, le premier trimestre de cette année a donné lieu à une très forte reprise, mais qu'il faut relativer car les chiffres en question sont à comparer avec un premier trimestre déplorable en 1999. La récente analyse des causes et effets du recul du conventionnel à laquelle s'est livré le service d'études de l'Entreprise portuaire anversoise et à laquelle nous avons déjà fait allusion dans un article précédent, est des plus intéressantes, dans la mesure où elle doit permettre aux diverses parties concernées de corriger le tir là où cela est nécessaire.
  • Le CA consolidé d'Air France a progressé de 13,5%
