  • OOCL: un 6e service Europe-Far East touchera vraisemblablement le port scaldien en 2001
    “Un sixième loop sera lancé entre l’Europe et le Far East en 2001 et il y a une chance réelle que ce service fasse une escale directe à Anvers”. C’est ce qu’a déclaré lors d’une réception donnée vendredi dernier à la clientèle belge Eddy Rombouts, managing director de OOCL (Benelux) NV, l’agence dédiée de l’armement à Anvers, qui intervient également pour Rotterdam et dont c’est le dixième anniversaire. Au stade actuel de ce projet les discussions sont toujours en cours entre membres de Grand Alliance pour déterminer le secteur géographique que couvrira ce sixième service en Asie, soit l’Asie du sud-est/sous-continent indien, soit la Chine. De même la capacité des PC qui y seront alignés n’a pas encore été déterminée. Pour l’instant il y a différents points de vue. Mais les chances d’Anvers sont très réelles, nous a-t-on dit.
