Cette expérience sera menée en partenariat avec des partenaires publics comme le Conseil régional Rhône-Alpes, et privés, comme les entreprises chimiques de la vallée du Rhône.
  • Le PE épargne le travail portuaire et le pilotage dans la libéralisation des services portuaires
    Le Parlement européen s’est penché mercredi dernier sur la proposition de directive sur l’ouverture du marché des services portuaires. La proposition de la commissaire aux Transports Loyola de Palacio a finalement été approuvée à une faible majorité, mais dans une version quelque peu réduite. Ainsi, tant les services de pilotage que le travail portuaire ont été exclus du texte. Les décisions du PE ont été accueillies de manière mitigée par les différentes fractions parlementaires.
  • Créer un réseau ferroviaire pan-européen en fonction d’une libre concurrence
    “Il faut évoluer vers une structure ferroviaire européenne, qui mette à l’écart la politique et les autres institutions qui défendent le statu quo au détriment d’une approche plus globale. Les intérêts nationaux doivent être sacrifiés dans l’intérêt d’une solution pan-européenne. Un cadre légal et fiscal doit rendre le rail attractif sur le plan des coûts. C’est ce que réclame l’industrie.” Gavin W. Roser, ancien general manager de Contship Overland et directeur du groupe Railfreight, a tenu, lors d’une des sessions de la conférence-exposition “Intermodal 2001” à Hambourg, des propos qui n’ont pas manqué de faire impression par la justesse du raisonnement avancé et la vision qu’a l’orateur d’un rail qui opérerait de manière efficace.
