  • Les chargeurs veulent effacer la frontière entre Anvers et Rotterdam
    “La congestion et les problèmes de handling nuisent à l’attractivité de nos ports et donc à leur position sur la carte logistique de l’Europe. Les longues tergiversations sur l’aménagement d’une seconde Maasvlakte, le Rhin d’Acier et l’amélioration de la navigation sur l’Escaut occidental de et vers Anvers créent à la longue un climat d’incertitude n’incitant pas les entreprises à venir s’implanter, car elles finissent par se demander si le delta Rhin-Escaut restera à plus long terme la région idéale pour leur centre de distribution. C’est jouer avec le feu. Le secteur néerlandais et flamand des chargeurs est dépendant dans une large mesure du fonctionnement optimal de nos ports. Freiner ce fonctionnement revient à freiner le développement de ce secteur et par conséquent notre économie, prospérité et bien-être”. Cet appel à une meilleure harmonisation des politiques néerlandaise et belgo-flamande en termes de ports et de mobilité a été lancé hier par D. van den Broek Humphreij, directeur général de l’Organisation des chargeurs néerlandais EVO, qui a ainsi donné le ton de la conférence organisée par l’EVO en collaboration avec la fédération des employeurs néerlandais VNO-NCW et son pendant flamand VEV à La Haye. La suite du débat a débouché sur un large consensus pour concilier concurrence et collaboration, même s’il a souvent été difficile de déterminer précisément où devait se trouver la limite entre les deux.

  • UPS et FedEx perdent la lutte contre DHL
    Le DoT, le Department of Transport américain, ne voit aucune raison de déposer une plainte officielle concernant la structure de propriété de DHL Airways, ni de supprimer sa licence de navigation aérienne ou de retirer la licence d’expéditeur de DHL Worldwide Express. Ainsi, le ministère ne tient pas du tout compte des plaintes d’UPS et de FedEx, qui avaient reçu le soutien de l’organisation américaine du transport routier ATA, le syndicat AFL-CIO et le syndicat du transport routier Teaster.
