  • Port state control drifting off course: Asian shipowners

The Asian Shipowners' Forum (ASF) ended its 7th safety and environment committee meeting in Kuala Lumpur by saying that it was "becoming increasingly concerned that the PSCs are deviating from their original objective".

  • Canadian Pacific envisagerait de désinvestir... CP Rail serait sur la liste
    Le groupe Canadian Pacific va-t-il procéder à une cure d’amaigrissement en se débarrassant de certains de ses secteurs d’activités, ceci sous la pression des actionnaires, qui exigeraient un rendement supérieur de leurs actions?

  • “Les goulots d’étranglement du réseau fluvial doivent disparaître en Europe
    Le développement des voies navigables est très en retard par rapport aux prévisions faites en 1992/94 lors de la présentation des ambitions. Pour concrétiser ces ambitions, il faudrait investir dans les voies navigables européennes quelque 14 milliards d’EUR d’ici à 2010 et environ 10 milliards d’EUR supplémentaires au-delà de 2010. Non seulement on est loin du compte, mais plusieurs projets majeurs concernant justement le TEN (Trans European Network) fluvial ont été annulés (Rhin/Rhône), ou retardés (Seine/Nord), ou encore suspendus (Twente/Canal de Mittelland). Résultat: des goulots d’étranglement un peu partout et alors que les instances tant européennes que nationales prônent un plus large recours au mode fluvial.
