  • ABX Logistics reprend le logisticien néerlandais Wegtransport
    On savait depuis plusieurs semaines qu’ABX Logistics préparait un coup aux Pays-Bas. C’est aujourd’hui chose faite, avec l’acquisition de la totalité des actions de l’entreprise logistique néerlandaise Wegtransport. ABX Logistics dispose désormais d’un parc de 290 camions avec leurs propres chauffeurs aux Pays-Bas. Le développement du réseau outre-Moerdijk doit permettre à la filiale logistique de la SNCB d’améliorer ses résultats financiers.
  • Scania veut revoir les masses et dimensions pour plus de sécurité routière
    Leif Östling, le président de Scania, a déclaré à Bruxelles que si la réglementation européenne sur les masses et dimensions des véhicules industriels autorisait des exemptions pour dispositifs de sécurité, il serait possible de réduire de moitié le nombre de personnes tuées dans des accidents avec des camions. En effet, il serait alors possible de construire sur la face avant des véhicules une zone d’absorption des chocs et un meilleur dispositif anti-encastrement. Toutefois, cela ajouterait 60 cm et 350 kg au véhicule. Le patron du constructeur suédois demande dès lors aux autorités européennes d’autoriser ce dépassement des normes pour les véhicules dotés d’un tel dispositif de sécurité.
  • L’industrie portuaire s’inquiète de la compétitivité d’Anvers
    L’industrie portuaire anversoise appréhende l’avenir. Pas l’avenir immédiat, mais l’avenir à moyen terme. Cette inquiétude est inspirée par le fait que les atouts sur lesquels Anvers a toujours compté pour assurer son expansion, s’épuisent petit à petit. Karel Hermans, le président de la VIBNA - l’association des entreprises industrielles du nord d’Anvers, qui organisait son assemblée annuelle hier - a énuméré les principales sources de préoccupation de son organisation: disponibilité de terrains industriels, problème de mobilité, manque de personnel qualifié et coût salarial élevé.
  • Comment transférer davantage de trafic de la route vers le rail?
    Le transfert du fret de la route vers le rail: tel a été le thème de la deuxième convention européenne sur le fret ferroviaire qui s’est tenue mercredi et jeudi à Bruxelles. L’occasion de dresser un tableau des espoirs, mais aussi et surtout des moyens pour faire en sorte que le rail joue un plus grand rôle, afin de réduire la pression du transport routier. La première journée a notamment permis d’étudier l’exemple de la Suisse en matière de transfert de la route vers le rail, de voir la situation du rail en Europe centrale et orientale, et d’entendre des responsables ferroviaires et des utilisateurs, plus ou moins heureux. En conclusion de la première journée, la Commissaire européenne aux Transports Loyola de Palacio a rappelé les objectifs de la Commission, résumés dans le Livre Blanc, et a annoncé des mesures prochaines concernant l’interopérabilité, la sécurité et même la tarification.
