  • Les armateurs néerlandais s’inquiètent du manque d’équipages
    Lors de l’assemblée générale des membres de l’Association royale des armateurs néerlandais (KNVR) qui s’est tenue à Rotterdam, d’aucuns ont fait part de leur profonde inquiétude quant au manque de navigants maritimes et aux différents régimes d’imposition pour la navigation maritime en Europe. Cette rencontre a également semblé être une plate-forme pour annoncer des reprises. Ainsi, le président-directeur de l’armement Spliethoff, Gerard Bos, a annoncé la reprise de Mammoet Shipping. “Vu notre participation de 100% dans Mammoet Shipping, nous allons bientôt changer le nom en BigLift Shipping”, a déclaré Bos, qui a surpris l’audience. Le directeur du Scheepvaart en Transport College, Erik Hietbrink, a fait de même. Ce dernier prévoit pouvoir reprendre entièrement dans les dix jours le centre de simulation MarineSafety Rotterdam, dans le but de consolider l’enseignement actuel et les facilités de formation pour la navigation maritime.
