  • ProLogis va créer un centre de distribution intégrée à Liège
    Hier, la première pierre du nouveau centre de distribution de ProLogis à Liège a été posée. Une véritable première pour le prestataire de services logistiques américain car il est le premier à construire un centre intégré en Belgique. La première phase sera achevée d’ici la fin de l’année.
  • SNCB: résultats semestriels décevants suite à la baisse du trafic de marchandises
    La SNCB a subi une perte de 9,1 mio. d’EUR au premier semestre de 2001. C’est ce qu’a annoncé le conseil d’administration de la compagnie ferroviaire. Ces résultats “assez négatifs” résultent essentiellement d’une diminution du trafic de marchandises. Cette tendance à la baisse s’est amorcée durant l’exercice écoulé, qui a été clôturé sur un bénéfice de 5,85 mio. d’EUR, en forte baisse par rapport aux 88 mio. d’EUR enregistrés en 1999. Le conseil d’administration a en outre approuvé les travaux d’infrastructure nécessaires dans le cadre de la réalisation de la branche nord de la LGV Bruxelles-Amsterdam et de la branche est entre Bruxelles et la frontière allemande.
  • Démarrage de la campagne “angle mort” de la SAV
    L’association flamande de transporteurs a pris l’initiative de lancer une campagne d’information sur la sécurité routière dans les écoles primaires flamandes. Cette campagne est destinée plus particulièrement à sensibiliser les enfants au fait que, bien souvent, ils se mettent eux-mêmes en danger de mort en se plaçant sans le vouloir dans l’angle mort des camions. Aussi le message est-il: “faites-vous voir pour être vus”. Par cette campagne, le secteur fait preuve d’une très grande maturité, car la SAV y va de sa poche pour cette campagne. Comprenne qui pourra: le ministère flamand de l’Enseignement intervient pour zéro fanc dans le financement de cette campagne. Parallèlement, une campagne de sensibilisation des chauffeurs sera lancée, mais celle-ci doit encore faire l’objet d’un débat au sein du Fonds Social du Transport Routier, qui réunit les organisations de transporteurs et les syndicats de chauffeurs.
