  • Le rail est dans l'incapacité de récupérer du trafic routier transalpin
    Si tout va bien, la réouverture du tunnel routier du Mont Blanc interviendra dans le courant du deuxième semestre de 2001, ceci à cause de l'exigence d'une procédure de reconstitution de l'accident. A cela s'ajoute une forte opposition des populations environnantes à toute réouverture au trafic aux camions. Cette nouvelle communiquée lors d'une des conférences de la SITL est en opposition avec l'insistance dont font preuve les ministres des transports français et italien pour une réouverture rapide du tunnel, ceci pour des raisons économiques.
  • Escaut-Rhin: l'avenir des ports maritimes passe par les plates-formes d'hinterland
    Les complexes portuaires dans le delta Escaut-Rhin doivent à différents niveaux faire face à une hausse de la concurrence, mais en revanche les relations réciproques et les liens avec d'autres ports et centres multimodaux situés dans l'hinterland se renforcent davantage. La relation avec Duisbourg, qui fonctionne comme centre de distribution pour le vaste hinterland de la Rhénanie-Westphalie, représente un exemple-type. Cela a été démontré la semaine dernière par le Dr. Theo Notteboom, professeur à l'Université d'Anvers et l'Institute of Transport and Maritime Management Antwerp (ITMMA), qui a donné un exposé à ce sujet lors du Logistics Forum Duisbourg.
  • La joint-venture entre LCAG et DHL commence à prendre forme

LCAG ne serait pas très intéressée. Selon W. Althen, ancien président de LCAG, une véritable fusion est impossible.
  • New York/New Jersey joue la carte de la diversification géographique
    Le port de New York/New Jersey a enregistré l'an dernier un trafic containérisé de 2,025 millions de TEU chargés, chiffre en hausse de 7,9% par rapport au résultat de 1998, qui avait été de 1,877 mio. de TEU. C'est la première fois que le grand port de la côte orientale des Etats-Unis franchi la barre des deux millions de TEU. Il renforce ainsi sa position vis-à-vis de ses concurrents directs. Autre fait marquant de l'exercice écoulé: l'importance accrue de régions comme l'Asie, l'Amérique latine et le Moyen-Orient, qui permet de diversifier l'activité, traditionnellement très axée sur les échanges avec l'Europe du Nord.
