  • La CE veut appliquer la règle “known shipper” au fret aérien au sein de l’UE
    La Commission européenne a adopté une proposition pour appliquer le concept du consignateur connu sur l’ensemble du fret aérien. L’initiative cadre dans les normes de sécurité plus sévères que les ministres européens des Transports ont imposées à la navigation aérienne suite aux attentats terroristes du 11 septembre. Le Parlement européen se prononcera au début de l’année prochaine sur la proposition.
  • Création d’un pool allemand pour enrayer la chute des taux d’affrètement de PC?
    La crise s’accentue dans le liner containérisé. Selon un rapport de BRS-Alphaliner, il y avait au début décembre 65 PC cellulaires de plus de 1.000 TEU (soit une capacité totale de 136.000 TEU ou 2,7% de cette flotte) en situation de lay-up. Parmi ceux-ci figuraient 5 PC de 5.000 à 6.000 TEU en lay-up ou en semi-lay-up au Far East. On peut d’ailleurs s’attendre à ce que ce nombre ira croissant au fil des prochaines semaines puisque d’aucuns parmi les opérateurs annoncent l’immobilisation d’au moins 15% de la flotte des PC opérant Est-Ouest et ce pour l’ensemble de l’année 2002.
  • La famille Borms met le nouveau “Poolster” en service

  • 2001 a été une mauvaise année pour les utilitaires Mercedes-Benz en Belgique
    DaimlerChrysler Belux a présenté vendredi passé le bilan de l’année écoulée. Si dans les voitures, il est globalement positif (Smart et Mercedes-Benz ont progressé, Chrysler a souffert du lancement de sept nouveaux produits), dans les véhicules utilitaires, il est franchement mauvais. La marque à l’étoile a régressé sur ses marchés traditionnels (utilitaires et camions légers) et sur le marché du tracteur, sa part de marché est même retombée à un niveau qui la ramène au début des années 1980. Annette Winkler, administrateur délégué de la société belge, nous a déclaré qu’elle compte redresser la barre - entre autres - en misant moins sur les flottes et plus sur les PME du transport. De plus, l’Axor devrait susciter une redynamisation de la marque.
