  • La “clause 108%” du système écopoints va être supprimée
    Contre l’avis de sa propre commission Transport, le Parlement européen a adopté la proposition de la Commission européenne visant à modifier le système des écopoints pour les gros poids lourds transitant par l’Autriche. Le rapporteur de la commission, l’Autrichien Hannes Swoboda, avait demandé au parlement de rejetter la proposition de la Commission portant sur la suppression de la “clause 108%”. Swoboda craignait qu’un nombre trop important de gros poids lourds seraient autorisés à transiter par l’Autriche lorsque l’ancien système des écopoints, qui expire fin 2003, sera remplacé par une nouvelle réglementation en date du 1er janvier 2004, ce qui aggraverait la pollution dans la région des Alpes. Le Parlement européen a cependant approuvé la proposition de la Commission visant à rayer la “clause 108%”, parce que celle-ci incite sans le vouloir de nombreux transporteurs à ne pas investir dans des véhicules moins polluants. La Commission estime que seule une approche intégrée pour la région des Alpes dans sa totalité permettra de réduire les dommages écologiques.
  • La batellerie assurera 40% des transports containérisés d’ici 2010
    Affirmer que d’ici 2010 au moins 40% des transports containérisés de et vers les ports maritimes en Europe seront assurés par la navigation fluviale, n’est plus une utopie. Afin de réaliser cet objectif, les autorités nationales devront cependant prendre plusieurs mesures incitatives, affirme l’organisation Inland Navigation Europe. L’association a fait cette déclaration à l’occasion de la conférence ministérielle pan-européenne sur la navigation intérieure qui a eu lieu hier jeudi à Rotterdam à l’initiative de la ministre néerlandais des Transports Tineke Netelenbos et de son collègue roumain.
  • Tibbet & Britten maintient ses prévisions de bénéfice à 38 mio. de GBP
    Le prestataire britannique de services logistiques Tibbet & Britten a enregistré une hausse de 9,3% de son chiffre d’affaires au premier semestre. Le bénéfice d’exploitation a augmenté de 9,2% par rapport aux six premiers mois de 2000, tandis que le bénéfice avant impôts régressait de 16%. Dans un communiqué, le CEO Mike Arrowsmith souligne que les prévisions de bénéfice sont maintenues à 38 millions de GBP pour l’exercice 2001.
  • Est-Ouest: l’heure est à la réduction de la capacité en slots
    Avec un peu de retard sur la FEFC, qui devrait se prononcer sur ce dossier dans les prochains jours à Shanghai, le groupe de quatorze armements engagés dans le Transpacific Stabilisation Agreement (TSA) entend lui aussi mettre au point un plan visant à réduire la capacité d’ici la fin de l’année ou le début de l’année prochaine, pour autant que la Federal Maritime Commission américaine n’ait pas d’objections. Cette évolution est rendue nécessaire par le fort ralentissement de la croissance des trafics (+3% eastbound, contre +15% en 2000) et par le fait que les pointes saisonnières ne sont plus aussi importantes et que les surcharges qui s’y rapportent, n’ont donc plus d’effet. Enfin, l’augmentation générale des taux de 300 USD par FEU n’a pratiquement donné aucun résultat.
