  • David Green (IRU) dénonce l’irréalisme du Livre Blanc
    “Le Livre Blanc sur la politique commune des transports n’est pas un cadre réaliste pour l’avenir. En effet, si l’analyse de base est la bonne, on peut s’interroger sur les remèdes qui sont proposés, car on ne retrouve pas les trois conditions indispensables à la réalisation du développement durable (innovation, incitants et infrastructure). Au contraire, on mise sur un transfert massif vers le rail, alors que, même dans l’hypothèse - irréaliste - d’un doublement du volume de fret ferroviaire d’ici à 2010... le transport routier de marchandises augmentera de 33% au lieu de 38%”. C’est ce qu’a déclaré à Bruxelles le président de l’IRU, David Green. La Commissaire européenne aux Transports, Loyola de Palacio, lui a répondu que le Livre Blanc doit être considéré comme l’ébauche d’un paquet de mesures qui doivent encore être prises. Elle a également averti que le risque existe que si la congestion routière ne diminue pas sensiblement d’ici 2010, certains voudront qu’on prenne des mesures dirigistes”.
  • Iscont Lines va s’équiper de nouveaux containers reefer“
    La concurrence, animée par les grands mega-carriers, est très forte sur la route que nous fréquentons, mais jusqu’ici, nous sommes toujours parvenus à nous adapter aux circonstances et nous avons malgré tout l’avantage d’assurer des escales directes et une bonne qualité de services.” Jacob N. Allalouf, un des deux actionnaires de l’armement Iscont Lines, qui assure un service régulier containérisé entre l’Europe du Nord, Israël et Chypre, fait résolument preuve d’optimisme, malgré les difficultés du moment. D’ici 2002, Israël devrait sortir de sa récession et les conflits avec les Palestiniens finiront par trouver solution, estime-t-il. “Je m’attends à une nouvelle période de prospérité”, nous a-t-il dit lors de la manifestation organisée avec le nouvel agent de l’armement en Belgique, la firme Iscont Lines Agency(1), une filiale à 100% d’Eimskip Rotterdam.
  • La réforme de la SNCB passe à la Chambre

  • De Palacio ne veut pas forcer les armateurs à augmenter

Elle estime que la situation diffère trop de navire à navire. Telle est la réponse de de Palacio à un courrier du parlementaire européen néerlandais Erik Meijer.
