  • DAT+ déploie sa couverture européenne
    Avec la reprise des vols de DAT + le week-end dernier, un espoir certain, mais encore léger, de voir une nouvelle compagnie battre pavillon national est légitime. Mais tout n’est pas gagné d’avance, loin de là. Une campagne de promotion de bas tarifs était annoncée pour ce mardi, ou du moins ce début de semaine.
  • “La performance sur l’AN sera encore bonne en 2001, mais 2002 cause souci”
    “Nous réaliserons encore un bon exercice cette année en ce qui concerne le segment de l’Atlantique Nord (AN), pour la bonne raison qu’il n’est pas envahi par les porte-containers post-panamax de 5.000 TEU et plus. En fait, ce théâtre opérationnel est quelque peu immunisé vis-à-vis de ces navires géants par le fait que New York n’est accessible qu’à des unités d’une capacité maximale de 3.500/4000 TEU. Pour dépasser cette norme, il faudra draguer considérablement.” Courtney Allan, directeur du secteur Atlantique Nord d’OOCL, nous a fait part lors de son passage à Anvers vendredi dernier de son optimisme en ce qui concerne la prestation de son armement sur ce segment de la navigation est-ouest, qui se distingue fortemment du transpacifique et de la relation Europe/Far East. “Pour l’instant, l’AN est toujours positif, mais ce n’est quand même pas brillant”, a-t-il toutefois ajouté.
  • Paul Laeremans élu à la présidence de l’IRU
    Le Belge Paul Laeremans, administrateur délégué de la FBAA (Fédération Belge des Exploitants d’Autobus et d’Autocars et des Organisateurs de voyages) a été élu président de l’Union internationale des Transports par route (IRU) à Genève. Il entrera en fonction le 1er janvier 2002, pour un mandat de 2 ans. L’assemblée générale de l’IRU a adopté par ailleurs une déclaration sur la fermeture du tunnel du St. Gothard, en Suisse. Elle demande entre autres qu’en vertu des accords du GATT, les restrictions au transit alpin soient suspendues cet hiver.
  • Niinivirta Transport a fait faillite
    La société finlandaise de transport et d’expédition Niinivirta a été déclarée en faillite le 7 novembre dernier. La procédure avait été entamée par les principaux créanciers. C’est la fin d’une des entreprises les plus en vue de Finlande. D’ores et déjà, plusieurs candidats-repreneurs se sont fait connaître. Les curateurs ont un mois pour prendre une décision.
