  • La navigation intérieure est plus avancée que le rail sur le plan de la libéralisation
    La libéralisation a considérablement agrandi les distances entre la navigation intérieure et les autorités, qui visent de plus en plus une approche globale en termes de mobilité. Leurs interventions se font moins directes. Le jeu de l’offre et de la demande a donc plus libre cours. Ce processus est beaucoup moins avancé dans le secteur ferroviaire, a constaté Han Van der Werf, secrétaire général-adjoint de la Commission centrale pour la navigation du Rhin lors du congrès économique international organisé à Liège. Marcel Verslype, administrateur-directeur général de la SNCB, a tenté de rectifier cette image.
  • La réunion ferroviaire de Paris doit démontrer l’urgence des investissements
    L’initiative revient à RFF (Réseau Ferré de France) et elle est soutenue par Loyola de Palacio, vice-présidente de la Commission européenne. Il s’agit de la première réunion sur les infrastructures ferroviaires. Se tenant à Paris le lundi 13 novembre, elle doit réunir 260 personnes, dont 50% au moins de participants non français. La présence d’une bonne quinzaine de présidents ou directeurs généraux de réseaux ferroviaires est annoncée. Enjeux: fixer un calendrier le plus précis possible et impulser un mouvement qui permette d’aller de l’avant.
  • Gand réceptionne du sel marin biologique du Brésil
    Le port de Gand réceptionnera ce week-end un premier navire transportant du sel marin du Brésil. Ce nouveau trafic, principalement pour des applications industrielles, est destiné à la firme Zoutman Industries de Roulers et sera acheminé à destination finale par la voie fluviale. Agro-Maas intervient dans ce trafic pour la gestion logistique, alors que CBM se charge de la manutention dans le port de Gand. Petit détail ne manquant pas de piquant, ce sel marin est obtenu de manière naturelle et biologique mais, vu qu’il ne provient pas de la Communauté douanière européenne (UE+ALEA+Visegrad), il est taxé à hauteur de 2,6 EUR par tonne.
