  • TNWA annonce un quatrième loop Asie-Europe en direct sur Anvers
    Il en était question depuis quelque temps déjà. Maintenant, c’est officiel: The New World Alliance (APL, MOL, Hyundai) annonce un quatrième loop entre l’Asie et l’Europe. Ce service hebdomadaire à jour fixe sera exploité sous le nom de NEX (New Europe Express). Il sera animé par une flotte de 8 PC, dont trois alignés par APL, d’une capacité unitaire de 3.800 TEU et 5 de 4.150 TEU alignés par Hyundai.
  • La présidence belge “Transports” sera axée sur la mobilité durable
    Il ne faudra pas attendre d’initiatives percutantes de la part d’Isabelle Durant, la ministre belge des Transports, lors de la présidence belge du Conseil de l’Union européenne. Elle tentera de faire aboutir les dossiers que la présidence suédoise ne sera pas arrivée à conclure et poursuivra les chantiers en cours. C’est ce qu’elle a annoncé lors d’une conférence de presse jeudi à Bruxelles. L’attitude de la ministre peut être qualifiée de prudente. De ses propres mots, elle a dit qu’elle veut “concilier ambition et réalisme”, tout en faisant preuve d’”enthousiasme et d’ambition”. Les accents seront placés sur la mobilité durable, et plus particulièrement la protection de l’environnement (avec l’intermodalisme comme un des points principaux), la sécurité des transports et de meilleures conditions de travail pour les professionnels du secteur.
  • Le désenclavement fluvial des ports côtiers sera un travail de longue haleine
    L’étude sur l’impact sociétal (MaIS - Maatschappelijke Impactstudie) qu’a fait réaliser l’Administration flamande des Voies navigables (AWZ) sur le désenclavement des ports côtiers flamands du côté fluvial est terminée. Elle propose six alternatives au gouvernement flamand. Toutes ont été évaluées en termes d’accessibilité, d’impact sur l’environnement, de gestion des eaux et d’impact sociétal. Trois d’entre elles supposent des investissements considérables dans l’aménagement ou l’adaptation de voies navigables. L’AWZ ne fait pas de choix entre les différentes options. Cette tâche revient au gouvernement, qui ne devrait en principe recevoir le dossier que dans le courant de 2003. Cette étude ne constitue donc qu’un tout premier pas dans un processus de décision qui durera encore quelques années.
  • Le terminal Ceres à Amsterdam mise sur une technologie et une informatique avancées
    “Ce terminal que nous allons mettre en service à Amsterdam, de par sa conception révolutionnaire, sera le meilleur du monde jusqu’à ce que quelqu’un d’autre l’imite. Grâce à cet outil, les PC de 7.000 TEU ne resteront pas long temps au port, leur objectif étant de gagner de l’argent en mer”. C. Kritikos, patron du groupe américain Ceres, exploitant de 14 terminaux à containers aux USA, au Canada, qui occupait mardi dernier la tribune du Propeller Club d’Anvers, s’est montré résolument optimiste en ce qui concerne ce nouveau terminal qui entrera en service en juillet prochain et qu’il a baptisé “Ceres Paragon”, ce dernier signifiant unique en son genre.
  • Mærsk Sealand intéressé par la deuxième Maasvlakte
    Mærsk Sealand a manifesté son intérêt pour une présence sur la deuxième Maasvlakte. John Verschelden, le directeur-général de Mærsk Sealand, a confirmé au quotidien néerlandais Financieele Dagblad que des négociations sont en cours. L’armement pourrait devenir le premier client de la deuxième Maasvlakte, mais Verschelden précise qu’il y a encore trop d’incertitudes concernant l’aménagement de l’infrastructure et la gestion du port à l’heure actuelle.
