Si les taux devaient encore augmenter sensiblement, ce mouvement pourrait prendre de plus grandes proportions.” Jean-Claude Ranson, directeur de l’entreprise maritime et de transport anversoise Vatinel s.a., avait déjà évoqué cette perspective à la fin de l’année dernière. Elle a apparemment connu un début de concrétisation. C’est une des raisons pour lesquelles Vatinel s’implante progressivement dans les pays de l’Est.
