  • Ewals Cargo Care veut aligner des barges entre Genk et le RU
    Ewals Cargo Care, qui mène une politique active depuis 1984 afin d’accroître la part de l’intermodal dans ses transports, veut aligner des barges entre Genk, sur le canal Albert, et le RU. Les volumes sont présents pour lancer un tel service “River Sea Barge”. Mais cela nécessite une adaptation de l’infrastructure sur le canal Albert, faute de quoi ce projet ne peut toujours pas voir le jour. C’est ce que nous a dit Luk Driessen, directeur-adjoint de ECC, en marge de la conférence de presse sur l’obtention de la certification ISO 9001:2000.

  • Promodi doit donner une image réaliste des modes de transport alternatifs aux chargeurs
    Les chargeurs disposent depuis hier d’un instrument de travail virtuel leur permettant de comparer l’utilisation de différents modes de transport pour un flux de marchandises donné avec celle d’autres chargeurs. Cet outil lancé par le VEV, l’Association des ports flamands (VHV), SAV, B-Cargo et Promotie Binnenvaart Vlaanderen pour aider les chargeurs à faire leur choix de transport s’appelle Promodi. Le but est également de confronter les chargeurs aux expériences d’utilisateurs, de sorte à ajuster la perception d’un mode de transport donné. Enfin, ils veulent aussi développer sur base de ces éléments un instrument de gestion de l’information avec conseils envers le gouvernement.
